University of Exeter

The University of Exeter offers courses relating to Jewish studies through the Department of Theology and Religion. Research interests at the University include the emergence and receptions of Jewish and Christian traditions, focusing in particular on the period of late antiquity, religious responses to the Holocaust, and Biblical studies. The latter includes, but is not limited to, the development of the Hebrew Bible, Classical Hebrew and Greek, and the interpretation history of the Book of Job. Teaching of Jewish studies modules at the University of Exeter can be seen on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. In the past, the study of antiquity and late antiquity has predominated, but recently there has been a growing focus on modern topics as well, thus facilitating an exploration of the experience of Jewish communities in various historical and geographical contexts, as well as examinations of early Jewish Biblical exegesis and the impact of crises and transitions, including the Holocaust.
