HIST-375 Judaic-Christian encounters
Spring for 2008-2009
This course will examine the nexus of textual, religious-cultural and social interactions between the makers of and adherents to Judaism and Christianity from time of the rise of Judaic messianism and apocalypticism, through the development of both Christianity and rabbinic Judiasm, into the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries of the Christian Era. The students will read a variety of primary sources (scriptural, theological-polemical, legal, and autobiographical), as well as secondary studies – mainly articles and book chapters produced over the last half century by a plethora of excellent scholars. The work of the course will consist of class discussions, a few short papers, and a term paper with oral presentations of them to the class.
