Life in the Diaspora

Lecture no. 23 from the course: The Old Testament

 Life in the Diaspora

Taught by Professor Amy-Jill Levine | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Babylonian Exile gave rise to the Diaspora ("dispersion") of the Judeans, now known as Jews. New questions of identity arose. The court tales of Esther and Daniel, like those of Joseph and Moses, gave answers at once humorous, macabre, and profound.
