The Sources of The Book

An Anatomy of the Literary Beginnings of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam


May 5–9 at 7–9pm; May 10 at 6-8pm
Cost to attend is £30 for all six classes; £7 for individual classes.
This six-day course is an intensive exploration of the literary origins of the books that define the Jewish,
Christian, and Islamic world-views. It is sometimes thought that the sacred scriptures of the book religions emerged from the pages of history as a fully developed canon.
In fact, the materials themselves were the product of disagreement, heresy, rivalry between sectarian perspectives, and attempts to glorify their founders and beliefs.
Join R. Joseph Hoffmann and Ibn Warraq for an unusual tour of the “origins” of the books and learn what critical modern scholarship has to tell us about the dating, origin, and purposes of the Bible and the Koran.
