About the course
For those unfamiliar with Biblical Hebrew, this beginners’ language course serves as an exciting and foundational introduction to the language, alongside a comprehensive exploration of the basic tools of translation.
This course is suitable for both existing St Augustine’s students and learners who wish to engage in this field of study for their own enrichment. You’ll be learning alongside a diverse group of students and attending classes at our Southwalk campus.
Once you’ve completed the beginners’ course or demonstrated a level of existing familiarity, you can engage with our intermediate classes. This module enables you to gain further fluency through reading selected passages of the Biblical text and to develop your skills in translation and exegesis.
“During your studies, you will engage with up-to-date scholarship on the relevant texts. You’ll explore a range of subjects, including matters of history and literary analysis, background, and theology.”
