Sects and the City (of 2nd Temple period Jerusalem)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At the end of the Second Temple period there were many versions of Judaism in the marketplace of ideas. We will review sources like the Dead Sea Scrolls, the New Testament, Josephus and others to reconstruct this lost world. No prior knowledge of 'Sex and the City' required (although it will help with the quiz at the end).
