Questions bibliques transversales A
5.00 credits
30.0 h

This biannual learning unit is being organized in 2021-2022
Main themes
This cross-curricular course, jointly given by two professors, will focus on a biblical theme or figure common to both Testaments.
[On theme, for example: the temple, the sacrifice, the law, the stranger, etc.; on figure, for example: David, Moses, Elijah, Abraham, etc.]
This year, the theme of the course is food (or diet). It appears many times in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Moreover, many NT texts evoking this theme allude or refer to passages in the OT; this intertextuality creates an excellent opportunity to discuss the relationship between the two main parts of the Bible. Furthermore, archaeology, anthropology, and sociology shed light on diet in ancient Israel and in ancient Palestine.
Teaching methods
The course involves working on texts and reading of articles (possibly in foreign languages).
Evaluation methods
The evaluation will be based on a written assignement, also to be presented orally.
Except for students who follow the course at a distance only, attendance and active participation to the classes are mandatory. In case of more than three unjustified absences, the course will not be validated.

In Q3, the evaluation will be based on a written assignment.
