Description: A new reading strategy for the Thanksgiving Hymns Hasselbalch asserts that current theories about the social background of the Thanksgiving Hymns are unable to explain its heterogeneous character. Instead the author suggests a reading strategy that leaves presumptions about the underlying social contexts aside to instead consider the collectionís hybridity as a clue to understanding the collection as a whole.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Other Language, Historical Approaches, History, Other History, Archaeology, Other Methods
