Join us on February 14 at 1 p.m. to hear Dr. Joshua Berman discuss «How the Hebrew Bible Broke with Ancient Political Thought.»

Throughout the ancient world the truth was self-evident: All men were not created equal. It is in the Torah—the Five Books of Moses--that we discover that the Bible appropriated and reconstituted ancient norms and institutions to create a new blueprint for society. Theology, politics, and economics were marshaled anew to weaken traditional seats of power, and to create a homogeneous class of empowered common citizens. Much of this anticipates developments in the history of political thought that would recur only during the Enlightenment and in the thought of the American Founding Fathers.

There will be a book signing of Dr. Berman's book, “Created Equal: How the Bible Broke with Ancient Political Thought,” in our gift shop following the lecture.

***This event will take place in our Demo Lab on the 4th Floor of the museum and is included in your general admission tickets.***
