课程概述

Course Description:

This MOOC on The Bible as Literature (The Old Testament) will enable students to read excerpts from the Old Testament of the Bible with understanding and appreciation. The Bible is a book-making book and literature which provokes literature. English and American literature do not exist without the Bible. “A student,” says Northrop Frye, “who doesn’t know what is in the Bible doesn’t know what is going on in English literature.” This MOOC on reading the Bible as literature will explain key words and sentences, interpret main characters and events, illustrate literary affiliations, shed light on the charm of biblical literature, and bring to light the true meaning of life as presented in the Bible.

The course consists of 125 short video lectures on the ten weekly topics: The Bible as Literature, The Creation of the World, Life in Paradise, The Fall, The Flood, Biblical Epic, Biblical Poetry, Biblical Story, Hero Story, and Biblical Tragedy. Starting with introductions to the course in the first week from such perspectives as the Bible as cultural influence, as a literary work, a literary anthology, a story, a literary text, a literary style, literary archetypes and a literary course,this MOOC then attempts to focus on one particular archetypal story in Genesis from the second to the fifth week of the course before exploring a more general overview of major genres of literature in the last four weeks of the course, revealing some hidden meanings and neglections between form and content in the Bible, thus explaining some prototypical yet essential features of literature in the Bible.

We also expect to find the usual literary qualities of delight and wisdom in the Bible. The Bible was not written primarily for entertainment, yet it exhibits almost all the usual literary techniques and features that constitute the entertaining side of literature. The wisdom embodied in the Bible provides endless intellectual inspiration to the biblical readers in all places at all times. Like reading any literary classic, reading the Bible as literature may be difficult, but readers inevitably find it intensely rewarding.

课程简介:“圣经文学”,顾名思义,是把圣经当作一部文学作品进行文本释读的课程,可作为大学生人文素质教育选修课和英语专业选修课。那么,为什么我们应该阅读圣经呢?我们又应该如何阅读圣经呢?其答案首先是圣经的文学形式决定了它的文学阅读方式。圣经是西方文化的根基,具有其普遍意义,对西方文明以及语言文学的影响不容置疑。从公元7世纪留下姓名的英国最早的盎格鲁克逊诗人凯德蒙到当代英语作家,圣经对催生英语文学的形式与内容以及对推动英语语言的发展都起到了举足轻重的作用。

该在线开放课程分为10个单元:“圣经文学”、“创世记”、“天堂”、“堕落”、“洪水”、“圣经史诗”、“圣经诗歌”、“圣经故事”、“英雄故事”和“圣经悲剧”;每周播放1个单元,期末复习考试2周;每个单元包括单元导入、文体界定、原文诵读、文本释读、难点讲解、主题评论、问题讨论、客观测试等教学环节,包括125个主讲人教学视频,总时长1022分钟左右;课程充分利用现代网络信息技术,有效地建立起了一个跨文化、跨学科、多层次、师生互动、学员共享、自主协作、互动交流的学习平台,充分体现了大规模在线开放课程的特点和优势。
