Abstract The historiographical and theological-political contrast between Jerusalem and Athens has at times been understood as an opposition between, respectively, revelation, which necessarily demands pious obedience, and reason, which, as such, conveys the freedom of critical thought. The focus of this paper is to ascertain how faithful such an understanding is to reason, religion, the Bible, and the Hebraic tradition.
