By comparing and contrasting Paul with Leonard Cohen, another “Apostle to the Gentiles,” this course explores radically new perspectives on the lives and writings of both. Themes include: 1/ Paul, Leonard, and Judaism, 2/ asceticism, 3/ mysticism, 4/ Paul, Leonard, and Jesus, 5/ Paul, Leonard and women, 6/ Paul, Leonard, and masculinity, 7/ Paul and Leonard as rhetorical writers, 8/ Paul and Leonard as prophets, 9/ Paul, Leonard, and writing “scripture,” and 10/ Paul and Leonard and their reception histories.

Students will encounter the latest research on Paul and will learn to recognize the deeply scriptural underpinnings and intents of Cohen’s poetry.
