AbstractThe interpretation of Scriptures was arguably at the heart of both dissident identities and antiheretical endeavours. This set of two sessions inquires into how methods of exegesis, varying accents, and the selection and reinterpretation of exegetical topoi shaped the identity of different communities of reading, and how these communities used the Bible to define the boundaries of authentic Christianity.
