Hermeneutics might be acknowledged to be operative while anything isn't instantly intelligible. The divine, studies of God and the sacred, are in fact a infamous hermeneutical challenge. how one can render, translate, interpret the unintelligible, the infinitely untranslatable with no certainly admitting to its impossibility? This e-book argues that interpretive organization has features which are represented by means of the figures of Hermes, trickster, and idiot. those figures demonstrate, practice, and problem the established order of a society and its buildings of strength, wisdom and trust. As hermeneutical acts are notoriously multivalent, engagement with those figures might help reframe hermeneutical paintings as a colourful reminder of the play among humility and braveness in reinterpreting the divine via mythos and emblems anew every day. those figures might help to reconstruct theology as mytho-logy in instructing us larger recognize for the dynamics of mythological narrativity and its logical exfoliation.
