This course introduces students to the history,  culture, and developments of thought in Judaism during the Hellenistic and Greco-Roman periods,  chiefly through the windows provided by the major
documents written during this period. Students will read the Apocrypha, selected Dead Sea Scrolls, and other texts which throw important light on the world into which the church and its theology and piety were born.
