REL 317 - The Bible in Historical Context


4 credit(s)
How did what we now know as “The Bible” come to be? Some traditions argue that the Bible is the literal word of God, but over the past two centuries a growing consensus has emerged among biblical historians that the scriptures evolved from oral traditions to the written word and were rewritten and reshaped as time went on. This course will expose students to a variety of historical, critical methods for understanding the Bible and for how the debates over its origins impact the social fabric of America today.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Humanities.
