3102: Paul and Pauline Tradition (Year 3)

This final year paper is intended to offer students the opportunity to engage in advanced undergraduate work in Pauline studies and to apply and refine the historical, literary and theological interpretive skills they have begun to learn. Students will gain a sound grasp of Paul’s life and letters, a detailed knowledge of Pauline theology with special reference to Romans, 1 Corinthians and Ephesians, alongside a broader understanding of the theological, ethical, literary and historical problems raised by studying the Pauline corpus in the New Testament.

Set texts, which are taught in classes, for this paper are:

In Greek: Romans 5-8; 1 Corinthians 5-7; Ephesians 1-3.

In English: Romans 5-11; 1 Corinthians 1-7, 15 and Ephesians.

Students will be able to comment on selected texts in translation and also, optionally, in the original Greek.

The teaching for this paper includes 8 tutorials and 8 lectures (90 minutes each). An optional Greek lunch for those who wish to engage the set texts in Greek is also offered each term.
