This article argues that Wright’s historical method is neither modern nor postmodern though it does contain elements that are found in each. In it I assess Wright’s method in light of critique from Carey Newman on the one hand and Brian Walsh and Richard Middleton on the other. I conclude that all of them are partially correct and partially incorrect.
