Abstract Two factors have played a major role in the theological debate on the canon of the Bible during the modern age: the theological hermeneutics worked out by the Reformation theology and the use of historical criticism in order to clarify the process of the formation of the Bible. The article illustrates some stages of the modern discussion on the New Testament canon: the historical and philological work of Erasmus of Rotterdam and the impact of that work on the assessment of some writings whose apostolic origin is not sure; the hierarchy established by Martin Luther among the New Testament books on the basis of the witness they give to the justification message; the doctrine of Holy Scripture set up by Martin Chemnitz and the protestant orthodoxy and the collapse of this understanding of biblical canon as a result of Johann Salomo Semler's historical research; finally, Friedrich Schleiermacher's attempt to combine historical criticism and canonical authority.
