JWST 203 - The Garden of Eden in Literature, Art, and Film

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD, WINT

The Garden of Eden is a story that is etched into our religious and cultural landscape. Most of us could immediately recognize its main characters and symbols: The Tree of Life, the forbidden fruit, Adam, Eve, and the snake. This course will examine the biblical story in its ancient Israelite context and in some early Jewish and Christian retellings. We will then study the role of Eden in select works of literature, art, and film.
