This course will examine the religious dimensions of law and the legal dimensions of religion through the comparative examination of underlying principles behind Biblical, Mesopotamian, and Greek family law. Attention will be given to judicial procedures with concentration placed on the legal role of women in society, including marriage, adoption, and succession. The Biblical view that law and religion are inseparable will also be contrasted with secular approaches to family law as found in Mesopotamian and Classical "codes" as well as with the growing Moslem theocratic belief that traditional Islamic family law is compatible with the needs of a modern society.
