BLHS-103: Biblical Literature and the Ancient World
School of Continuing Studies, Room C215

Course Description:
This course studies Biblical literature in the social, political, and religious context of the ancient Mediterranean world. It begins with a historical overview that is careful to map it onto the "Greeks and Romans" course so that students will be oriented historically and geographically and see the overlap. It traces the history (including prehistory) of ancient Hebrews, the emergence of Christianity, the early relationship between Judaism and Christianity, and the struggle for Christianity to define itself in the Roman Empire before it became for all practical purposes the official religion of the Roman Empire.

*Please note that this sample class is reserved for students interested in the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program. If you are interested in another program at Georgetown School of Continuing Studies, please contact Admissions and we will connect you with a visit opportunity.
