This chapter turns to the question of authority. If religious reading requires, in some sense, submission to authoritative direction as to what is worth reading and how, what is this likely to mean in terms of (1) institutions in which religious readers might flourish; (2) epistemologies to which they might be committed? The institutional question is discussed by contrast with the present situation of American and European universities.

Keywords:   religious reading, authority, institutions, epistemology, American universities, European universities
