Parthia-L The Parthian Empire is a fascinating period of Persian history closely connected to Greece and Rome. Ruling from 247 BC to AD 228 in ancient Persia (Iran), the Parthians defeated the Seleucids, conquered most of the Middle East and southwest Asia, and built Parthia into an Eastern superpower. The Parthian empire revived the greatness of the Achaemenid empire and counterbalanced Rome's hegemony in the West. Parthia at one time occupied areas now in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaidzhan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel.

Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Sponsored by the Divinity School of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. The list will be active during the spring semester of 1999 (from 4 February to 30 May) and will be tied directly to a course module offered at St. Andrews. This course, DI3216, "The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha," will examine the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, a loose collection of ancient, quasi-biblical writings that were excluded from the canons of both normative Judaism and Christianity. We shall explore the reasons for the rejection of these documents by the major canons, the problems of the mixed Jewish and Christian strata in the texts, their intertextual connections with biblical literature, and their influence after antiquity. All texts will be read in English translation.
