Have to be mentioned.

The speech is an act of communication between a speaker and her addressee; this communication is taking place in the context of a shared context of meaning. As such, the speech has a relationship to the reality, which can be characterized by a dialectic structure between sense (content) and significance (presumption of truthfulness) (see Ricoeur 1974: 28). With the transformation from speech to text, however, the communication becomes independent from the intention of the communicator. e. e. with what author wanted to say.
Thus, the spiritual text (as symbolic text) cannot be understood as an immediate communication act between the (historical) author (of the second, third or seventh century) and the contemporary reader. Rather it is a text whose primary significance is destroyed—opening-up the space for on-going re-interpretation and appropriation. Therefore, during the course of Human history, spiritual texts and religious motives (‘symbols’) are no longer tied to their original communication context. 16 A. Habisch and C.
