Aims/Description: The Bible has had a profound influence on the subsequent development of literature in the cultures where it has held sway. In this module we will examine how literary study of the Bible has increased our understanding of the subtlety of its composition and also how later writers have learned from and reacted against its influence. This module will be of interest to students of literature as well as those specializing in biblical studies.
