Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The conquest and destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple 587 BCE influenced Judaism in particular and the cultures of the western world in general like almost no other event in the history of the world. In response to the crisis of the Babylonian exile during the years 587-539 BCE, Judaism developed concepts and ideas which represent even today the cornerstones of Jewish identity.

Assessment and permitted materials

This lecture class will explain the reasons which led to the Babylonian exile, which crises the Jews had to overcome in this time period, which concepts and ideas they developed in response to them, and how these concepts and ideas influence not only Judaism but the cultures of the western world in general as of to date.
