Primary Instructor:

In this course, students will examine scripture, law, exegesis, polemics and philosophy from the three major Abrahamic religions of the medieval west. Students will explore the similarities and the differences among the three religions, and consider how those religions influenced each other and how they distanced and refuted each other. Our goal is to identify the range of ideas concerning the nature of belief and law existing in the Middle Ages and to establish how contexts — political, social, cultural, and intellectual — inform those ideas. During the academic term, students will study important primary texts from the three religions, analyze their content, and evaluate the relationships between them. The course will be discussion centered and students will be graded on short papers, class participation, and a final exam.
