Worlds and Cultures of the Bible
Selected biblical texts are situated within their historical and socio-cultural contexts. Students will study the cultures of the Ancient Near East and the Graeco-Roman world, and develop competencies in using historical and socio-cultural methodologies and literary and artefactual data necessary for understanding and interpreting biblical texts. Attention will also be given to these texts and their contexts in contemporary politics and religion in the Middle East.
