ENGL 156 - The Bible as Literature

Semester Hours: 3
The aim of this course is to view the Bible as, firstly, a major work of literature and history, and secondly, as a major sourcebook of myth, story, metaphor, and images that have shaped Western literature and art. We will look at the impact of the Bible on English and American literature and explore it as the testing ground for modern theories of literary criticism. Along the way, we will take note of the original languages of the Bible, the art of translation, and some of the theological concepts that have given the Bible its distinctive place in literature and history.
