Bible Study – Apostle Paul PDF Print E-mail
Community Classes

Bible Study – Apostle Paul: We have just studied heroes of the O.T. as described in Hebrews 11, in order to analyze "why" they are called "heroes." Obviously, as human beings, they were not perfect. Yet, they are noted as The Faithful. We learned in that session that through obedience to God, they learned to trust Him. Trusting God in each situation turned to Faith for the future. In this coming session, we will study the Apostle Paul, one of our great heroes of the N.T. We will follow his life in Scripture: through his letters and travels teaching that the long awaited Savior has come; ending with his imprisonment and death in Rome. We read Scripture and discuss (without argument) what we believe the author/s are trying to convey. This class represents many Christian denominations. If you have questions, call Phyllis (301-598-1106). Class meets Tuesdays, May 20-July 8, 10-11:30 am. Fee: $15. Register: Clubhouse I.

Shakespeare’s Shylock: The Evolution of a Character, a CLL Course PDF Print E-mail
Community Classes

Shakespeare’s Shylock: The Evolution of a Character. Part I: Shylock on the Elizabethan Stage, a CLL Course: This course will examine Shakespeare’s, The Merchant of Venice, focusing on the historical precedents for and the evolution of the character, Shylock. It will be offered in two parts, Part I: Shylock on the Elizabethan Stage, and a second class, Part II: Shylock Re-imagined for the Modern Stage, to be scheduled later this year. Part I, examines questions perennially raised about the fact that Shakespeare, born and bred in an anti-Semitic culture, and writing for an anti-Semitic audience, created a Jewish character of such humane and sympathetic qualities. Still unresolved is the debate on whether Shakespeare himself was sympathetic to this character. Since there is to this date still no consensus on who Shakespeare was, it is impossible to attribute to him specific attitudes or beliefs he may have held personally, beyond what he set down in the texts of his plays. Moreover, all that he wrote was the dialogue he assigned to his characters. Shakespeare left behind no prefaces or program notes, no interviews with the press, articles in periodicals, or letters to friends and associates, all staples of contemporary drama criticism. But in Shakespeare’s case we can address only what he did leave us, the dialogue of his characters, and what has been gleaned from the study of the history of the period.  We will begin with pre-Shakespearean ideas about Jews, the mythologies out of which the character was fashioned, including some famous prototypes such as Marlowe’s Jew of Malta, contemporary dramatic conventions in the stage representation of characters like Shylock. We will consider some of the historical, political and social context in which Shakespeare wrote, focusing on audience expectations. Time permitting, we will survey as well emerging tradition of performance and interpretations from the 17th through the 19th centuries exemplified by great actors of these periods. Instructor Don Eisen is professor emeritus of English and theater. He has taught courses in acting, directing, theater criticism, dramatic literature, theory and play analysis. He has also acted and has directed more than 30 productions. For more details on this and other CLL courses, visit www.cllmd.com. Class meets Thursdays, May 22-June 26, 3-4:30 PM. Fee: $15.
