Marc Brettler on Modern Jewish Biblical Scholarship

On January 27, 2020, Professor Marc Brettler (Duke University) gave a talk at UCLA on the Jewish development of historical-critical biblical scholarship.

The talk begins at 6:38.

 

“How and when did Jewish scholars enter into the mainstream of biblical scholarship? What religious and other constraints prevented them from entering the mainstream until the second half of the twentieth century? And once they entered, did they produce a body of distinctive Jewish biblical scholarship?”
