Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Bible survives in several Jewish and Christian forms. As the religious and cultural memory of Judaism and the various Christian cultures and churches it functions since antiquity as a nucleus of cultural and religious identity in which it can hardly be over-appreciated. The development of the biblical canons and their textual standardization were of key importance for the development of several ancient and modern cultures. Judaism could survive the diaspora only in close relationship to its canonical scriptures. This class surveys therefore the textual and canonical history of the Hebrew Bible in dialogue with its Christian textual and canonical history.
