JSt 317 Jewish History from Antiquity to the Medieval Period

Introduces students to the Jewish historical experience from its Biblical origins through the end of the first millennium CE primarily by means of close readings of primary sources. Describes the diverse forms of Jewish life under Persian, Greco-Roman, Early Christian and Muslim rule and examines the boundaries of pre-modern Jewish cultural and religious identity. This is the same course as Hst 317 and may be taken only once for credit.
