Economic Life: Insights from the Judeo-Christian Tradition

TEO 216  Economic Life: Insights from the Judeo-Christian Tradition

Class hours: 42

Credits (ECTS): 6

LM-EMSpecialization in Management for a Civil and sustainable Economy

Year: 2nd

Course held in English

Terms: 1st–2nd

he course starts with a general overview of the world of the Bible and an introduction to the literature of the Old and New Testaments, focused on the fundamental events that marked the history of Israel/Judah, as well as the life of Jesus and the early Church, and based on the reading of several key texts. Besides being valuable per se, such knowledge helps to better understand the ideological orientation and the practices that characterize today’s economy. Indeed, this is the result of long transformation processes which have mostly taken place within the Western civilization and have been driven, among other factors, by religious views. In the second part of the course students will be led to understand some key passages of these processes, their impact on our life, and possible ways for change.
