Chiasmus Criteria in Review

Author Neal Rappleye

This article gives a historical overview of various attempts to provide criteria for determining what constitutes a chiasm, summarizing scholarship about chiasmus from the eighteenth century through the twenty-first century. Tables and comparisons of the major views are offered, especially for publications since 1975. Rappleye provides a suggested list of the preponderant criteria—ones that most scholars would agree with, at least partially—and then recommends suggestions for future research regarding chiastic criteria and the identification of chiasms in general.
