Darkness Visible: 
A Study of Isaiah 14.3-23 as Christian Scripture

BORDJADZE, KARLO,V (2015) Darkness Visible: 
A Study of Isaiah 14.3-23 as Christian Scripture. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



How does one read the Old Testament as Christian Scripture? This question, voiced in an academic setting, invites a reflection on how to take biblical texts with both hermeneutical alertness and sustained imaginative seriousness. While scholars have recently engaged in robust discussion about theological hermeneutics there have been relatively few worked examples with particular Old Testament texts. My dissertation seeks to meet this need by providing a close reading of Isaiah 14.3-23, a text with a complex amalgam of textual, historical-critical, history of reception, and theological issues.
