Briggs, R. S. (2006) 'What does hermeneutics have to do with biblical interpretation ?', Heythrop journal., 47 (1). pp. 55-74.
In common usage, 'hermeneutics' is a word often used interchangeably with 'interpretation'. This has especially become so in biblical studies, but a review of how the word 'hermeneutics' came to prominence in biblical scholarship suggests that there is value in continuing to keep it as a concept distinguishable from interpretation. The omnipresence of the word in contemporary biblical studies obscures some of the specific roles that hermeneutics is well suited to perform. The potential benefits of hermeneutics in this more limited sense for biblical interpretation are discussed with respect to the two main hermeneutical theorists of the late twentieth century: Hans-Georg Gadamer and Paul Ricoeur.
