Solomon and the Wisdom Tradition (SC-628)

This course will examine King Solomon in the historical narrative tradition (1 Kings 1-11), which praises his wisdom but condemns his failure to live up to the standards of the scribes who advocated religious exclusivism, and the wisdom tradition, which views him as its patron saint and encourages dialogue with the intellectual and cultural heritages of Israel’s neighbors.
