Teaching at the University of Aberdeen focuses on Jewish religion, although an overview of Jewish history and culture from antiquity to the present is offered. Through the University’s undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, it is possible to survey the content, theology, and history of formation of key books within the Hebrew Bible, with evaluation of source-critical, redaction-critical, form-critical, and canonical approaches to the biblical texts. Teaching in this field also offers insight into the history and religions of ancient Israel and Judah. It provides an overview of the history and religions of Ancient Israel and Judah, as portrayed in the Hebrew Bible, as illustrated by archaeological findings, and as understood within their larger Ancient Near Eastern context.
