Credits: 3 (3 + 0)

Prerequisite(s): WMS 1001, or PHI 1010, or PHI 1050

Description: This course explores the intersection of feminist analysis and modern biblical scholarship. The course begins with a brief introduction to the vocabulary, analysis, and methods of women’s studies followed by a review of historical, literary, source, and redactive criticism used in contemporary biblical scholarship.  Once the course tools of analysis are established, students examine women from the Hebrew and Christian Scripture, as well as non-canonical texts.  Context and gender implications of biblical passages are highlighted.  The course also examines gendered aspects of the hermeneutic tradition of early Christianity, as well as contemporary interpretations.
