REL 333. The Other Bibles: Dead Sea Scrolls, Pseudepigrapha, and Apocrypha

This course will familiarize students with a broad range of early Jewish and Christian writings, found outside of the Jewish and Protestant Christian canon, that were held to be Scripture at the time of their production and reception ca. 300 B.C.E. - 200 C.E. Using a broad range of interdisciplinary methodologies drawn from biblical studies, students will study these Scriptures in the context of late Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman cultures, as well as in light of archaeological findings.
