Abstract: Paul, it has been argued, is the most influential writer in the history of western civilization. This course will examine Paul’s life and teachings within the social, religious, philosophical, and literary contexts of the ancient Mediterranean world. We will read early Christian literature written by him, about him, and in his name, as well as more recent interpretations of his writings and legacy. What is Paul trying to say? How is he trying to say it? How would his contemporaries have understood him? In trying to answer these and other questions, we not only want to examine the specific themes and arguments finding expression in these letters; we also want to cultivate skills and strategies for interpreting these and other texts—ancient or modern, sacred or secular
