Course detail: OSH111 - Tales of Terror: Forbidden Texts in the Bible
Violence, illicit sex, treachery, abuse of women and other minorities-who would think that these subjects would be in the Bible? Well, they are, and in this course, we will examine selected passages where they occur. Our aim is not to dwell on the lurid but to analyze and interpret these texts in terms of historical and cultural context. We may also discover that our journey into the "dark side" of the Bible has helped us become more informed and responsible readers of a book that is foundational to much of Western civilization.
