Chapter Summary

The story of Susanna (Dan. XIII; LXX) seems to have been a source of fascination since its very beginning. Moreover, ambiguity in interpretation seems to be a characteristic feature of this brief but striking addition to Daniel. This chapter examines how the Christians in the first five centuries read and understood the Susanna narrative. The chapter entails description, synthesis and reflection. Description entails investigating instances in the writings and art of the early Christians where the Susanna narrative occurs. Examination of the literary and socio-historical contexts of the writings and artworks is implied, but the approach still remains descriptive. Synthesis requires assembling the data from the descriptive process into various categories, either by similarity or contrast. The final process, namely reflection, reviews the study critically and draws its conclusions.

Keywords: Christianity; Susanna (Dan. XIII; LXX)
