Wisdom Literature

Lecture no. 22 from the course: The Old Testament

 Wisdom Literature

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

Since the "Sumerian Job" of the 4th century B.C.E., authors have attempted to make sense of the world and our place in it. Biblical contributions to such "wisdom literature" range from the optimistic Song of Songs to the practical proverbs and the pessimistic Ecclesiastes. But the most famous, and most controversial, is the Book of Job.
