The Book of Books: the Bible in English Literature

kljvThis twelve-week course, which will run from 31 October, will explore the great variety of different texts that can be found in the Bible and their tremendous impact on authors from the Middle Ages to the present day.

If you don’t already own one, you will need to acquire a Bible–any modern translation will do, though I would recommend one of the more classic versions:

King James Version

Revised (or New Revised) Standard Version

The (New) Jerusalem Bible

These are, however, just suggestions.  In addition, I will provide an anthology of the literary texts we will discuss.  There’s been a lot of interest in this course, so if you haven’t already expressed yours and would like to attend, do contact me so I can reserve a place for you.


Where:  Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane

When: Thursdays, 1pm – 3pm, starting 31 October and ending 23 January (12 weeks, including a break for Boxing Day)

Fee: $250
