Benedict's criticism of Modernist Biblical Hermeneutic

Jordanes, "One must then bear in mind the living tradition of the whole Church" (Rorate Caeli, May 31, 2010):
... where the hermeneutics of faith, indicated by Dei Verbum, disappear, another type of hermeneutics appears of necessity, a secularized, positivistic hermeneutics, whose fundamental key is the certitude that the Divine does not appear in human history.

Pope Benedict XVI, address to the Fourteenth General Congregation of the Synod of Bishops (14 Oct. 2008)
