Law: Ancient World
Knowledge-Values Courses: Religious Studies II
This course examines the place of law in ancient society, emphasizing Semitic codes of the ancient Near East (Bible and Greco-Roman laws) and its relationship to morality. It shows how a 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.
