The Bible as Literature with Gerald Weiss – POSTPONED
Thursday, Feb. 6,
13, 20, 27 & 28, 10:30 – noon.
Dr. Gerald Weiss will look at the Hebrew Bible from the perspective of its literary character in this 4-part series. Using selected passages from this ‘anthology’ of books, we will examine the different narrative genres, its stylistic forms, and its prose and poetry. Whatever one’s religious orientation or beliefs about the Bible, if nothing else, it remains one of the greatest literary works of all time and can be appreciated as such. Dr. Weiss earned a B.A. and an M.A. in Classical Languages from St. Louis University. He received his PhD. at Gregorian University in Rome. See registration link for more speaker details.
