E 358J • The Bible as Literature
12:00 PM-1:00 PM
Become familiar with the principal texts, interpretations, and images of the Old and New Testaments, so as to be able to recognize the use of the Bible in any form of literature, e.g., sciences, history, medicine, law, music, art, etc. Since the West depends upon the interpretation of "Alexandria," that's the interpretation we will study, although we will find that the West incorporates Jewish, Muslim, and pagan interpretations (as indicated by the required second text).
See the attached list of Readings and read them all, even though I spend half of the semester only on Genesis.
You have to attain "A" in all three areas or "B" in all three areas to receive the respective "A" or "B."
