Religion
Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WRi

The biblical book of Genesis narrates the opening drama of a divine/human encounter. Foundational to Jewish and Christian scriptures, this ancient text has generated centuries of interpretation and appropriation. This course will examine the Genesis narrative through progressive historical lenses: its relationship to ancient Mesopotamian mythology, its place in ancient Israelite religion, its appropriation and transformation within early Jewish and Christian interpretation, and finally its place within political, legal, and social disputes in the modern U.S. Enrollment Limit: 14.
