HRE13 Religious Studies


In this course, archaeology is used to aid the study of the Old Testament by illustrating and illuminating the cultural background of the Bible lands.  Covering an area from Mesopotamia to Egypt and spanning the time period from Creation to the Hellenistic period, it highlights the themes of the Old Testament.  Creation, the Fall, and the Flood are discussed in their biblical and cultural context.  A study of some of the prophetic books of the Bible will contribute to an understanding of the culture of the Assyrians, Persians, and the Temple Period.
