VOJTĚCH ŠANDA AS A BIBLE SCHOLAR
Languages of publication
The study deals with the life work of the Czech Catholic priest Vojtěch (Adalbert) Šanda (1853–1953). He lectured Exegesis and dogmatic theology at the seminary for priests in Litoměřice and later Dogmatic Theology exclusively at the Theological Faculty in Prague. Over the years 1902–1914, he was one of the most renowned Czech Catholic bible Scholars with his works written in German enjoying recognition throughout Europe. He later switched exclusively to dogmatic theology, but in the twenties he once again spoke out strongly on exegesis in the strictly conservative work Moses and the Pentateuch. The study follows the turnaround in the exegetical focus of his work within the context of his career and the fate of the Catholic exegesis of the first half of the 20th century.
