NT199 -The Material and Social World of Early Christians in Asia Minor
NT199 – THE MATERIAL AND SOCIAL WORLD OF EARLY CHRISTIANS IN ASIA MINOR
This course is open only to students already registered for the January 2013 pilgrimage to Turkey.
This course will introduce students to the historical, social, political, and cultic context of the world out of which the New Testament and early Christianity emerged in Asia Minor. In January 2013, students will spend ten days with the professors touring archaeological excavations and museums in western Turkey. Through immersion in the archaeological sites of the first through sixth centuries CE, the course will assess the ways in which the experience of ancient spaces shapes our readings of New Testament texts.
For those wishing to receive academic credit for the trip, after registration approval from the professors, assignments will be due both during the trip and two weeks after returning to the United States, during the Spring 2013 term (Easter).
Prof. Deirdre Good and Prof. Katherine Shaner. 1-3 credits. Students may indicate upon registration the number of credits they wish to pursue.
If this is the first course you are registering for in this Easter 2013 term, please add a non-refundable $100 academic fee. If you have already registered for a course this term, you do not need to add the fee. Please note that if you are selecting courses over several terms, you will need to pay the academic fee once in each term.
