Pusey and scripture: Dead end or fertile ground?

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    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.
