Chapter Summary

This chapter reveals some concluding remarks on this book Physica Sacra: Wunder, Naturwissenschaft und historischer Schriftsinn zwischen Mittelalter und Früher Neuzeit. Across different perspective eras, the diachronic detailed analysis reveals how much the hermeneutics of revelation had remained faithful to their paradigms despite of the upheavals in the world images. The history of Bible reading was all just upheavals in detail and also a history of continuity and centuries of knowledge transfer, which for generations knew few interruptions but many filiations. The persistence of the historical sense of scripture would not have been possible without the creative transformation and continuous reformulation of its stable core statements. Medieval Aristotelians and Cartesians had the same goal when they took the talking donkey Balaam under the microscope, the clear delineation of human and animal domain. It was irrelevant from a hermeneutic perspective. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Bible reading; hermeneutic perspective; historical sense of scripture; nature of science
