This course is a survey of the literature and theology of the New Testament within the context of the Roman world. As part of the core experience of the semester in Rome, this course will introduce students to the modern scholarly methods of biblical studies to foster a comprehensive understanding of the origins and spread of Christianity in the Roman world. This includes attention to the historical and social contexts of ancient Rome, and to the archaeological finds that have expanded our knowledge of the ancient capital. At the same time, students will be exposed to the major theological ideas of the New Testament texts and their development in the Roman Catholic tradition.

The course consists of classroom lectures and discussions, and onsite visits. These onsite visits include the major archaeological sites of ancient Rome, early Christian cemeteries, shrines, and basilicas, and the Renaissance churches of Rome. These visits have a twofold purpose: 1.) to introduce students to the topography of the ancient city; and 2.) to expose students to the rich artistic heritage of the city through the ages, concentrating on the New Testament in art.
