Holy Moses! Exodus in the Jewish, Christian, and African American Traditions
CCIV 243
Spring 2012 not offered

In this multimedia course, we begin with the Biblical text of Exodus and go on to discuss Moses in Greco-Roman paganism, in Jewish writers of the Hellenistic Age, and the interpretations of Exodus in the New Testament and the Church Fathers. We then turn to a study of Moses in psychoanalytic thought, in political theory, and in American and African American literature, film, and song. One week of class is devoted to representations of Moses in painting and sculpture.
