RELS 2315 - Adam and Eve and Their Interpreters
Focuses on the story of Eden, which has been interpreted and reinterpreted by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim thinkers throughout history. Primarily, Adam and Eve have served to legitimize and enforce gender and other social hierarchies, but occasionally, and particularly in light of modern feminism, are employed to justify egalitarianism. The course uses this story, and its long history of interpretation, as a case study for examining the social and political applications of religious principles derived from sacred texts in Western societies, as well as the influence of those societies on the diverse ways in which the text has historically been interpreted. Prereq. ENGW 1111, ENGW 1102, ENGL 1111, or ENGL 1102.
