Text, Interpretation and Imagination

  • Course Dates: Mon 14 February 2022 to Thu 17 February 2022

The images, stories, myths and teachings of the Bible have served as a foundation for the Western cultural imagination.

In this module, students have the opportunity to examine the role that stories and images from the Bible play in our Western cultural imagination. We consider how our own, and other people’s, cultural presuppositions play into how we read biblical texts, as well as thinking about how the texts themselves challenge these presuppositions. Students will compare biblical texts with other types of text to ask questions like ‘what makes a text sacred?’, as well as being encouraged to creatively and critically interpret the biblical texts themselves.

This course is open to ‘auditors’ — those not enroled on a postgraduate studies programme. What does it mean to audit a module?
