In one sense the question about the relationship between Scripture and Christian experience is an ancient one, usually formulated as the question about the relationship between Scripture and tradition. The modern discussion of this relationship began in the sixteenth century when, for diametrically opposed reasons, both Protestants and Catholics escalated the distinction between Scripture and tradition into a virtual separation.
