Chapter Summary

The author's main presentation at the Stellenbosch conference focused on the relationship between African and European interpretation of the bible. In this chapter, the author shares some thoughts about the relationship between the two key concepts 'dialogue' and 'interpretative power' in a totally different context, namely, the institutional interaction between church and synagogue in Rome. He used this Fremdkörper from Rome as a backcloth to highlight the corresponding institutional interaction between African and European biblical studies. The author argues that it is our responsibility as concerned African and European scholars to create contexts for a dialogue.

Keywords: African biblical studies; dialogue; European biblical studies; Great Synagogue of Rome; interpretative power; Roman Catholic Church; Stellenbosch conference
