RELI 201 - Jewish Textuality
(Same as JWST 201 ) This course addresses characteristic forms of Jewish texts and related theoretical issues concerning transmission and interpretation. On the one hand, canonical texts–Bible, Midrash, Talmud–are considered, including some modern (and postmodern) reactivations of these classical modes. On the other hand, special attention is given to modern problems of transmission in a post-canonical world.
Prerequisite(s): JWST 101 or permission of the instructor.
Two 75-minute periods.
