Numerical Features of Selected Texts

  • Casper Labuschagne (Creator)



    Logotechnical or Quantitative Structural Analysis (QSA) is a systematic investigation of the framework of biblical texts. This activity can also be called numerological criticism. It should certainly not be regarded as a new discipline in biblical scholarship but as a supplementary branch of literary criticism, of which the first and foremost task is to explore the architecture of a given text. It is based upon the hypothesis that the biblical writings are numerically structured— that is, that their composers arranged words, verses, pericopes, sections, books, and collections of books according to patterns defined by number, much as poetry is defined by quantities of cola, verselines, strophes, and cantos/stanzas.
