Department of Old Testament Studies

The Old Testament Department is engaged in biblical studies focused on the Old Testament part of Scripture (the so-called Hebrew Bible) in its historical and literary context. It covers a wide range of disciplines from the philology and linguistics of ancient Hebrew, Aramaic and other languages, through biblical archeology and the history of ancient Israel and Judea, surrounding cultures and civilizations with their cultural heritage, to detailed Bible study as a unique library of the testimony of the "people of the Lord" and after methodological questions of understanding these texts and the issue of their responsible interpretation or interpretation.

The staff of the department also participates in the activities of the Centre for Biblical Studies of The Academy of Sciences and Charles University in Prague.
