Jewish Messianism

Duration: Five 3-hour sessions

Overview

This course offers an overview, in all its diversity, of Jewish Messianism – one of the cardinal doctrines of Judaism, which has had a profound influence on non-Jewish thought.

The five three-hour sessions are devoted to:

  • The definition of Messianism
  • Messianism as a historical-political process
  • Mystical Messianism
  • Neutralizations of Messianism within Judaism
  • The impact of the Messianic Idea on non-Jewish worldviews.

Though history will not be ignored, the approach will be primarily thematic, and stress will be placed on the close reading of key texts in translation, a dossier of which will be provided.

This course can be studied as part of the PGCert in Jewish Studies.

Course Dates

Mondays November 17th, 24th, December 1st, Thursday December 11th, Monday December 15th 2014.
