NMC257H1: Vice and Virtue in Biblical Traditions


This course examines the formation and development of ancient Jewish literary traditions, centering around complex narrative and poetic figures such as Eve, Abraham, Moses, David, Esther, Job, and Lady Wisdom. Traditions to be studied will be selected from the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and from early Jewish interpretive writings: the apocrypha, pseudepigrapha, and Dead Sea Scrolls.
