In his presentation Alan Padgett analyses and rejects a powerful and attractive ideology (‘myth’) in academia, viz. that the best approach to biblical and religious studies is one that brackets‐off our own faith, an assumption that religious faith corrupts scientific research. He suggests as a replacement a post‐modern method that is holistic, humble, and accepting of different faiths, using the Resurrection of Jesus as a focused example.

Keywords:   academia, different faiths, faith, holistic, humble, ideology, myth, Padgett, post‐modern method, scientific research
