Rel 197-10 This is How the World Will End: The End-Times in Judaism and Christianity (4)

Thinking about how the world will end was an important feature of certain types of Early Judaism.  Early Christianity took over many of these ideas, and they became fundamental to later Christian theologies, including many that continue to be advocated today.  This course will look at ancient Jewish and Christian texts that speak about the end and will trace some of these ideas through more recent developments in these two religious traditions.  (HU) Junior Writing Intensive
