Cíle předmětu
The course is intended to provide a historical and critical introduction to the New Testament, arguably the single most influential collection of written texts in European history.
No previous knowledge of the New Testament or earliest Christianity is presupposed. The lectures are open to students from different fields of study that will benefit from the deeper knowledge of the New Testament literature (esp. Religious Studies, History, Fine Arts, National Literatures etc.). The lectures are likewise well suited for incoming Erasmus students.
Upon the completion of the course, students will have obtained a good command of the New Testament literature embedded in its historical and cultural context.
The structure of the lectures is loosely based on Bart D. Ehrman's The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings (Oxford: Oxford University Press 2012) and Dale B. Martin's New Testament History and Literature (New Haven - London: Yale University Press 2012).
