About the Master’s degree
In the 21st century, far from having detached ourselves from the past, the memory of what we were is one of the most heated battlefields.
We are what we remember, what we tell ourselves we were and what our ancestors died for. Thousands of years ago, people in the Middle East decided to write down questions that do not expire for the first time in history.
This is how the Bible was born. These universal texts have decisively influenced the way we live, think and hope , and survive not only in the religious traditions that accept them as sacred texts but, above all, in paintings, literature, films, music, ideas, etc., which form part of universal culture and heritage.
All this vast tradition can now be reread critically, knowing the original context and meaning of those texts, their subsequent interpretations and manipulations, as well as the possibilities they offer to contribute to a more just and peaceful world.
