A hermeneutical approach in which the Bible is understood as accurate historical narrative throughout, with the exception of parts clearly stated not to be so.

Use this tag for questions about the belief that the Bible should be understood literally, or about the interpretation of the Bible in this way. Use it also if you want a question answered solely from the point of view of Biblical literalists. Do not use it on questions about how to interpret the Bible unless you are only interested in literalist interpretations.
