Last update: doc. ThLic. Josef Hřebík, Th.D. (27.10.2019)
Besides two minor poetical books (Cant and Lam), the attention is focused on Psalms, that represent the main prayer book of both Israel and The Church. The basic explanation of the psalms, of their special stylistic features, principal literary genres and symbolics is included.
Then a general introduction to the questions concerning the wisdom literature follows. This literature is documented by five wisdom books of the Old Testament (Prov, Job, Ecc, Sir, Wis), that differ externally but still complement each other. To their brief historical, literary and theological characteristics the anlysis of selected texts is added.
