The essays answer the title's question in three inter-related areas: interpretation, translation and reception. Wansbrough's academic career has been focused in Oxford where he was Master of St Benet's Hall.Involved in many inter-religious and ecumenical dialogues, he is also a longstanding member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, founded to foster and guide biblical studies. For much of his time on the commission he worked under Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. Finally, as a monk of Ampleforth Abbey, Wansbrough has played a crucial role in scriptural studies for many generations of members of religious communities in the UK and abroad.
