Coming in the fall of 2020 is a new intermediate Theology course: THL316 (Tues and Thurs, 9:20-11:00am) taught by Dr. Mark Schuler.
This course examines the accounts of the death and burial of Jesus in their historical, archaeological, literary, and theological contexts. Topics include: the editorial emphases of the gospel writers; implications of the death of Jesus in early Christian writers, especially noting their assertions that he was rose from the dead; Roman and Jewish judicial procedures; crucifixion and burial in the ancient world. In addition, the course explores the remembering and interpretation of the death of Jesus in a range of artistic, media, cultural, and religious expressions through the centuries.
The course meets the intermediate CORE requirement in Theology and may also be used as an elective in the Major in Theology or the Minor in Religion. Registration opens in February.
