Postscripts is a fully refereed journal devoted to the academic study of scripture around the globe. The study of sacred texts has historically been a highly technical, specialized and elite practice, held in preserve by religious authorities and professional scholars. As important as this technical and specialized work is, it represents only a small proportion of the rich panoply of engagements with texts that are foundational in the lives of individuals and communities around the world — texts that travel under the name of ‘scripture’ or ‘sacred’ text.
