Biblical Studies

Rooted in Sacred Scripture and the Commentary on the Sentences.


Foundational to Dominican academic formation since its earliest days, Biblical Studies is rooted in the two primary fields of study: Sacred Scripture and the Commentary on the Sentences. Taken as a whole, the field covers Jewish and Christian canonical, deuterocanonical, and extra-canonical scriptures as well as the background literature of early Israel, biblical and post-biblical Judaism, and early Christianity.
