    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of the Bible and Its Reception (JBR) promotes the study of the reception history of the Bible in terms of both methodology and content. Published twice annually, JBR aims to shed light on the broader horizon of the impact of the Bible in a wide variety of academic fields and cultural settings. Articles focus on the field of Reception History, delivering new research results as well as up-to-date academic discourse. The journal also intentionally cultivates interdisciplinarity, covering a wide range of topics including reception of the Bible in Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other religions; in patristic, medieval, modern, contemporary, and postcolonial contexts; in film, music, literature, and visual arts; and in relation to politics, gender and sexuality, and a variety of other social and cultural issues.


    De Gruyter is partnering with the Society of Biblical Literature to offer benefits and discounts on publications in biblical reception to SBL members.
