Readings in the Greek Bible and the Greek Fathers for Graduate Students
Readings in the Greek Bible and its ancient Greek reception. Texts may come from the Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of the Jewish scriptures), the Greek New Testament, anonymous early Christian documents like the Didache, or from the works of the Greek Fathers. Study of the language (syntax and diction), textual history, authorship, composition and transmission, literary structure, social and historical contexts, message and aims, theological agenda, and ancient reception. A graduate version of GREEK 350S, this course features additional work commensurate with the expectations for graduate learning (including additional primary and secondary readings each week).
