Theological and Religious Studies Tripos


(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 397)

With effect from 1 October 2003

Paper C2. Poets, prophets, storytellers, and sages

The detail for this paper has been amended to include additional topics. The detail now reads as follows:

This paper will be concerned with the history of the Old Testament period and with developments in its literature, theology, and religion. Particular attention will be given to such topics as literary studies of Genesis and the books of Samuel; the Exodus narrative; the development of law in Exodus 20-23, Leviticus and Deuteronomy; Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes; prophecy to the end of the eighth century (especially Amos, Hosea, and Isaiah 1-39); Haggai, Zechariah, and Isaiah 56-66; the books of Chronicles and Ezra-Nehemiah; the Song of Songs; and other ancient Near Eastern law, prophecy, and wisdom. The Board may from time to time prescribe texts for special study.

The Faculty Board are satisfied that no student's preparation for the examination in 2004 will be adversely affected by these changes.
