About the exam...

Here's what the exam will look like: three parts.

Part One (20%) is a kind of a pre-test: you get to choose 10 out of 20 names and terms.  You write only a couple of lines about them: once we see that you got the idea, then we stop reading, so don't write too much.  Everyone should be able to find ten names and terms that they can identify.  If you can't, then we have a prejudice against the rest of the answers....

Part Two (50%) is the most important part: there is no single 'right answer'.  We want to see how you deal with a big concept and develop it.  A few dates would be nice, but the exam isn't about dates, it's about getting the BIG PICTURE.

Part Three (30%) asks about the required reading.  It is on the exam to make sure that you read (some?) of the bibliography by the end of the year.  Just give us the general idea expressed in the sources cited in the question.

NOTE: Parts Two and Three have two groups each (one concerning the first half of the course and the second concerning the second half).  If you answer Part Two with a question from the first group, then your answer for Part Three should come from the second group, and vice-versa.  The point of this is to make sure that write something both about the earlier history of Christianity and about the later history of Christianity.

Remember: BIG PICTURE!  To get the big picture, click for a brief summary of the lectures (in Hebrew!)  I suggest that you click the little arrow on the far right to download the document.
