Sign up for "The Bible & Film: The Holy Book Meets the Silver Screen"

The Bible and Film

The Bible has been a star of Hollywood and the silver screen since the birth of cinema. This course tells that story. The Bible has deep roots in American society—in communities of faith, in politics, in art and literature, and in popular culture. It is no surprise, then, that filmmakers have frequently drawn on the Bible as source text and as inspiration. This course explores the ways in which the Bible has been interpreted and reimagined in film over the past century.
