Module code: HST7403

Credits: 30

You will develop skills which historians of the Jewish past might assess long-term trends in Jewish-Christian relations, a subject often at the heart of historiographical debates in Jewish History.

It also offers rigorous training in the use of a wide range of sources: theology, sermons, religious art, religious polemics, and devotional literature. It will raise and extend your awareness of a rich and challenging historiographical field of Jewish-Christian relations, and the history of ethnic and religious groups.

The module will also sharpen your skills of critical assessment of primary sources and interpretation of imagery.
