This study comes to grips with the particularities of this type of interpretation by using tools from ethnography and literary criticism.

By analysing the commentator s interpretive assumptions and the framework of significances within which the commentaries were produced and read, the author is able to solve a chronic problem in the study of early Christian exegesis. Further, she articulates the social context of the performance of noetic exegesis and its significance for monastic teachers, philosophers, and their audiences.
