Chapter Summary

Surveying studies about the historical Jesus in the Netherlands and Flanders one notices how scholars report on what went on in Germany, Great Britain, the United States and Canada and give their comments, but one finds little that is typically, let alone exclusively Dutch. One also notices that many books were translated into Dutch from foreign languages for a wider audience, attracting attention also outside various Christian communities. There has also been a market for works about the documents of Nag Hammadi and other apocryphal Christian writings, and on manuscripts from Qumran, in view of their possible impact on our knowledge of early Christianity, and of Jesus and his immediate followers. With regard to scholarly contributions, on which this chapter concentrates, it should be stressed that they may be characterized as comments on an ongoing international debate rather than as arguments in defence of a specific, novel point of view.
