' general presentation of the corpus of the Old Testament: its composition, canonization, the history of its formation and the transmission of its text [the text];
' an overview of the main geographical and historical landmarks that make it possible to understand both the world in which this literature was born and the history it tells [the realia];
' an exposition of the narrative story that runs from Genesis to the end of the Book of Kings, as well as a presentation of prophetic and wisdom literature, providing a few keys to reading [the narrative].
However, like any introduction, it would miss its purpose without reading. Another part of the work'''and not the least'''will consist of a cursive reading of some significant texts and narrative sets of the Pentateuch (Gn'''Dt) and deuteronomistic historiography (Josh'''2Kings).
In addition to the information given during the course, additional readings will be required (set of articles and books).
Three proposals, for example:
J.L. Ska, L'Ancien Testament à ceux qui n'ont rien compris ou presque, Paris, Bayard, 2012.
J.L. Ska, Les énigmes du passé. Histoire d'Israël et récit biblique (Le livre et le rouleau, 14), Bruxelles, Lessius, 2002.
M. Richelle, Guide pour l'exégèse de l'Ancien Testament. Méthodes, exemples et instruments de travail (Interprétation), Charols, Excelsis, 2012.
There will be no syllabus, but a variety of tools and appendices will be made available on the Moodle page of the course.
