REL 4070. Origins of Judaism and Christianity (3 credits)


This seminar examines the work of scholars engaged in redescribing the beginnings of ancient Israel, of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It focuses on the critical difference between "beginnings" as a historical category and "origins" as a mythic category, and the implications of this difference for understanding the foundation narratives of Western religious traditions.
