Law: Ancient World


Common Curriculum: Humanities/Arts Pre-modern

This course examines the place of law in ancient society, emphasizing Semitic codes of ancient Near East (Bible and Greco-Roman laws) and its relationship to morality. Meeting of Semitic-Judaic and Greco-Roman in the first Christian centuries produced natural law and canon law of later times. Relevant social issues are examined.

Prerequisite: RELS T122 or RELS H233.
