RGB5274HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2011  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course studies the Book of Wisdom in its entirety with a view to appreciate the theological worldview formulated for a Jewish community at a time of great cultural upheaval in the clashing Roman, Hellenistic and Judaic cultures. The literary structures of each major part of the Book of Wisdom provide a context for interpreting the ideas put forward often in dramatic fashion. The study of literary structures and rhetorical devices displayed in the text provides the dominant methodology for exploring the work. Major paper.
