The theme of this volume in honour of Eep Talstra is 'Tradition and Innovation in Biblical Interpretation', with an emphasis on the innovative role of computer- assisted textual analysis. It focusses on the role of tradition in biblical interpretation and of the innovations brought about by ICT in reconsidering existing interpretations of texts, grammatical concepts, and lexicographic practices. Questions addressed include: How does the role of exegesis as the 'clarification of one's own tradition, in order to understand choices and preferences' (Talstra) relate to the critical role which Scripture has towards this tradition? How does the indebtedness to tradition of computer-driven philology relate to its innovative character? And how does computer-assisted analysis of the biblical texts lead to new research methods and results?
