The history of scholarship has undergone a complete renewal in
recent years, and is now a major branch of research with vast
territories to explore; a substantial introduction to History of
Scholarship surveys the past vicissitudes of the history of
scholarship and its current expansion. The authors, all specialists
of international standing, come from a variety of backgrounds:
classical studies, history of religions, philosophy, early modern
intellectual and religious history. Their papers illustrate a
variety of themes and approaches, including Renaissance
antiquarianism and philology; the rise of the notion of criticism;
Biblical and patristic scholarship, and its implications for both
confessional orthodoxy and eighteenth-century free thought; the
history of philosophy; and German historiographical thought in both
the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries. This challenging
volume constitutes a collection of remarkable quality, helping to
establish the history of scholarship as a more broadly
acknowledged, worthwhile field of study in its own right.
