Course Description:

During the last few centuries, manuscript discoveries have revolutionized our view of early Judaism, early Christianity, and the Bible. From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the gnostic codices from Nag Hammadi, from the Oxyrhynchus papyri to the great manuscripts from Egyptian desert monasteries, we now have a wealth of information that challenges our text of the Bible, our notions about Judaism and Christianity's relation to each other, and our picture of the diversity of early Christianity. This class will explore the major manuscript discoveries and what they tell us about religions past and present.
