JST 102 - Introduction to Jewish History

Description
The Jewish People today comprise approximately one quarter of one percent of the world’s population. Despite their small numbers, their influence on religion and culture has been remarkable. This course will survey the history of the Jews primarily from a secular/academic perspective, that is, not as the sacred history of the people of the Bible, but as a socio-political phenomenon. Since Judaism – the religion of the Jews – has been important to the self-understanding of the Jewish people, some attention will necessarily be paid to the basic elements of Jewish religious tradition, as well as its relationship to Christianity and Islam. There will also be opportunities to reflect on what we mean by “history,” as well as to consider the relevance of the Jewish experience to that of other peoples, especially those who have been diasporic minorities. || Course Information: Same as RELS 126.
