Jews & Christians in The Ancient World

Students acquire a basic knowledge of the early history of Judaism and Christianity. However, on the theoretical level, the class aims to provide the students with a forum to ask some of the questions most relevant to religious studies (e.g.: Are we to use self-definition, typology, or both in our formulating religious categories? How do certain categories help and hinder our understanding of religious and other social phenomena? What is the relationship between ideology and social world? How do we learn about the ?real? world from literary evidence?)
