Participants will be guided to analyse and translate easy narrative texts of the Old Testament by themselves.

Permitted materials: Dictionary and grammar charts.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Analysis and translation of easy Biblical Hebrew texts; command of the basic rules of Hebrew grammar; competence to judge foreign language translations regarding their rendition of the original text.

Examination topics

The course is taught as a combination of the lecture and active participation of the students in class. Additionally, exercises on „moodle“ are offered. There is also a tutorial supporting the course ("Biblisches Hebräisch 1 - Vertiefung"). The attendance is strongly recommended.
