Master's Degree in Biblical Studies: History and Influence of the Bible

University of Deusto

Presentation

In the 21st century, far from having detached us from the past, the memory of what we were is one of the most burning battlefields.

We are what we remember, what we tell ourselves we were and what our ancestors died for. Thousands of years ago, people in the Middle East decided to put in writing, for the first time in history, the questions that do not expire.

This is how the Bible was born. These universal texts have had a decisive influence on the way we live, how we think, and how we hope and survive not only in religious traditions that accept them as sacred texts but, above all, in paintings, literature, films, music, ideas, etc., which are part of the universal culture and heritage.

All that vast tradition today can be re-read critically, knowing the context and original meaning of those texts, their subsequent interpretations and manipulations, as well as the possibilities offered to contribute to a more just and pacified world.
