The book of Wisdom does not seem to fit well in the biblical canon. It is a recent deuterocanonical book that seems to teach more Greek philosophy than genuine Jewish doctrine. Do we have here the final stage of wisdom movement or a completely different one more or less heretical? This course will offer first a general introduction to the book and then a deeper study of its major themes (the principle of retribution; immortality; wisdom at work in history).
