Hymnes du Nouveau Testament et leurs fonctions (Les)

In the New Testament, we can find many texts that are suitable for hymns. They are canticles, prayers, songs of praise, confession or eulogies, using poetical language which circumvents the core message, focussing rather on the narrative and persuasion. Why is it that we sometimes opt for the aesthetic potential of rhythm and images? What is the relation between this unique material and its narrative or discursive context? The contributors to this collective research have responded principally to those two questions. The notion that these little selections of poetry, or prose, are no more than excerpts needs correction. Whatever form they may come in, from the canticle to the eulogy, hymns set in a story or argumentations are invested with a variety of precise functions. Our investigation focused on such texts principally in the New Testament, enriched with some selected examples from the Old Testament and ancillary literature.
