Wesley is interested in the role of the category of 'scripture' within adequate theories of textuality and culture. Beginning with Jon Calvin's theory of reading, Kort shows that the theory and practice of reading as detailed by Calvin are applied to other texts that begin to be read as scripture and eventually, in the modern period, replace the reading of the Bible as Scripture.
