Can we trace an "authentic" Jewish identity through history, as distinct from many "cultures" of Jews in the multitude of times and places in which they have lived? This course provides an overview of major trends in Jewish civilization from biblical times through the early modern era (to approximately the 17th century), with this and related questions in mind, by engaging in close readings of traditional Jewish sources on the one hand and seeking contextual understandings of Jews and Judaism within various non-Jewish settings, including polytheistic, Christian, Zoroastrian, and Muslim host cultures, on the other.
