This unit focuses on the Biblical Wisdom books such as Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes. The main focus of the course is on the literary, philosophical and religious aspects of the texts. Issues addressed will include whether the books present a dialectic of orthodoxy (Proverbs) versus challenges to that orthodoxy (Ecclesiastes and Job). Additionally, the unit will explore the relationship between the core Biblical Wisdom books and other literature of similar genre, such as Ben Sira and various writings from Qumran.
