This course allows students to study a range of primary exegetical texts in Classical Hebrew, Aramaic and Syriac, to develop research methodologies in the writing of a 15,000-word dissertation and to provide a solid basis in the subject area for those intending to go on to do original research. Teaching for the compulsory core course is covered by a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials covering the principal sources for exegesis of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and select topics will be covered in Michaelmas and Hilary terms. These may include ancient Bible translations, Qumran texts, the New Testament, Rabbinic hermeneutics, Greek and Latin patristics, or early Syriac commentaries. They will be explored in the essays set which students will present in meetings with their tutor, either in one-to-one sessions or with one or two other students in related subjects (such sessions are known as ‘tutorials’).
