Date: Wednesday, April 19, 2023

Time: 07:00pm

The Hebrew Bible exercises a highly sophisticated narrative art that deploys a variety of distinctive conventions and techniques unlike what is found in other narrative traditions.  The lecture will undertake an introduction to these narrative procedures with special attention to the use of repetition as a way of better appreciating the artistry of the Hebrew stories.
