Welcome to the Center of Biblical Hermeneutics, a part of the Department of Biblical Studies.
What is hermeneutics? 
The Bible is fundamentally a collection of different texts, and the key to understanding Christianity is understanding the texts that make up the Bible. The process and methodology of understanding—interpreting—these texts is called hermeneutics. A variety of different modes of hermeneutics—each one known as a hermeneutic—have evolved, with modern Biblical hermeneutics being a synthesis of the ideas of different theologians such as Schleiermacher, Barth and Ricoeur.
Key questions include: what is the role of the author of a text? How should a Biblical text be understood? What is the function of the Bible—revelation from God, witness to it or a tool for simple human understanding?
