Ernesti [and Ast: the reorientation of hermeneutics from theology toward philology]
Translated by Thomas Nemeth
Although a largely unoriginal thinker, Ernesti, a rationalist, offered an interpretation of Scripture freed from Church dogma and the instability of common sense. With him, hermeneutics centered on philology rather than on the limited sphere of Biblical investigation and became both freer in its techniques and more scientific in its content. Shpet also traces here developments through Ast.
