Pusey and scripture: Dead end or fertile ground?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Pusey is often characterised as obscurantist and conservative in his
rejection of the higher literary criticism of the Bible in the later part
of the nineteenth century. Much of the criticism of Pusey has focused
on a limited assessment of Pusey as a scriptural scholar and
on unfair psychological analysis. This article examines Pusey’s epistemology
more deeply and concludes that he had a breadth of vision
which commends itself to the modern world as a critique of reason
rather than a rejection of reason. Pusey’s role as a biblical scholar is
reassessed within the broad context of the Oxford Movement.
