Chapter Summary

This chapter intends to reach a justifiable insight in the task of drafting a new historical study on the canon as well in as the method for carrying out this historical study with the desired effect. Two phases can be demarcated in modern canon study. The first starts with the Reformation and ends at the acute canon crisis in 1970 with as exponent the publications in E. Käsemann?s Neue Testament and as highpoint the Amsterdam School in the Netherlands. It should be mentioned first that canonical and biblical criticism are practically indistinguishable in this study, so the attempt has not been made. If the postmodern spirit of the age is able to influence Christian faith and biblical theology including the study of the canon, then this is due to the continuous entwining of the objective and subjective factors that influenced the past usually unconsciously.

Keywords: biblical criticism; biblical theology; canonical criticism; Christian faith; Käsemann?s Neue Testament; modern canon study; postmodern spirit
