NYU rolls out free course on Ancient Israel

New York University recently began rolling out a new addition to its free open education courses on its YouTube channel. The new arrival is Ancient Israel (YouTube) taught by Daniel Fleming. So far NYU has posted only six lectures from the course, and the course is not yet available at New York University’s main Open Education site.

Fleming, whose research interests include Assyria and other cultures of the ancient Near East, spends a lot of time in these early lectures talking about the cultural context of ancient Israel. The first two lectures are a general introduction, and folks with a bit a bit of background in the subject may want to start on lecture 3.

The syllabus is here.
