SEMINAR'S HISTORY   AGM Assistance


Description

The “Hebrew Poetry” continuing seminar was established as a component of the Catholic Biblical Association’s Annual Meeting by Brother Aloysius Fitzgerald, FSC (1931-2003†), from Department of Semitics and Egyptian Languages at The Catholic University of America. The The continued focus of the annual sessions has been the role of poetry as the medium for the message in the poetic passages that comprise more than one third of the Old Testament. In recent years the seminar participants have worked their way through third Isaiah (chapts. 56 – 66), and the third, fourth, and fifth books of the Psalter (Psalms 73 – 150).
