Aims

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 confront him/herself in a personal and critical way with the reflection developed during the lectures on the basis of biblical texts.
 
2 argue his/her position, showing that he/she is conscious of the complexity of the questions at stake, also when confronted with various philosophical and religious traditions.
 
3 read a biblical text methodically, showing that he/she understands what is implied by such a process of reading and interpreting a text in the present context.
 
Content
The course will inform students about the content of the Judeo-Christian Bible and the history of its formation. It will then show how various theological currents have found their place in the biblical corpus. A commented reading of narrative texts that have never ceased to resonate in the history of European culture will be proposed. Finally, some commonly held ideas about the Bible will be critically examined.
