This chapter charts how the representation of the Bartholomean corpus has changed over the succeeding centuries to suit the times. The treatment of the farewell sermons in the three and a half centuries since their initial exposition shows that they have not simply spoken to their own time and space, but have often been made to speak to other times and other spaces. The chapter argues that while successive layers of interpretation of the farewell sermons can enrich our understanding of the corpus, they should also serve as a warning that it is all too easy to lose sight of the functioning of historical texts and artefacts in their original setting.
