The World of the Bible: Exploring People, Places, and Passages

Planning for an interactive and multimedia website to bring scholarship concerning the Bible to general audiences.

The website The World of the Bible: Exploring People, Places, and Passages brings scholarship about the Bible to audiences with an interest in the history, literature, archaeology, and interpretive legacy of the Bible. Through a simple focus on the most familiar people, places, and passages of the Bible, the site will provide interactive and multimedia materials that enhance people's understanding of biblical origins, contexts, and interpretations. Humanities themes that address the "big questions" of human existence as well as the particularity of biblical times will connect a curious general public to the ongoing debates and established consensus in the field of biblical studies.
