Unearth the fascinating material culture of the Holy Land.

A palimpsest of unique proportions, the Holy Land traces its history back across the many hands through which it passed: Roman, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim alike. By excavating the region’s rich grounds, archaeologists allow us to glimpse an array of ancient civilizations. As you peel back the layers of the Holy Land, you will gain a greater appreciation for its shifting history: the one-time City of David, the site of Jesus’ Galilean ministry, later the home of the emperor Constantine, and today the land shared by each Abrahamic faith.

In Biblical Archaeology, taught by leading archaeology expert Fr. Leslie J. Hoppe, you will unearth the remains of over twenty centuries of civilizations. Fr. Hoppe begins by introducing you to the enterprise of biblical archaeology. Under his expert guidance, you will then learn about the histories and cultures of our ancestor
