Reception of Christian and Jewish Traditions (THEM123)

30 credits

During its initial weeks this module offers the opportunity to consider a range of approaches to the study of how Christian and Jewish traditions have been received and interpreted in varying historical contexts. Particular attention will be given to an extended case study example chosen by the convenor. You will be introduced to the diverse modes of research in this area with an eye to then formulating your own in-depth project that engages with cutting-edge scholarship in the field. This project, pursued during later weeks of the module, might include reception of Christian and Jewish thought in varying historical contexts, and may involve interaction with numerous modes of expression, including art, architecture or written texts.
