For several years I offered a graduate anthropology seminar called "The Ethnography of Christianity," and was charged with a brief survey of the ancient Hebrews in a freshman world civilization course. A few of the materials prepared for use in those classes, plus a few others that are available on this public web site, are indexed here for free use for educational purposes. Depending upon the course, some of the materials here have interactive quizzes associated with them.
The pictures here and accompanied by (unrelated) quotations at the foot of this page change whenever the page is reloaded. They originally decorated the tops of the seminar syllabus and other course pages. In most cases the copyright status of the pictures is unclear; if you own the copyright to one of them, feel free to ask me to remove it.

Hebrew Sacred History (Heavily selected extracts from Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Isaiah, and Jeremiah to provide a world civilization class with a general sense of the ancient Hebrew "contract with God.")
Four Hebrew Tales (Reformated or re-edited from the public-domain bibles with introductions and notes added.)
Nican Mopohua: Here It Is Told (The original text of the alleged apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe in 1531. Bilingual presentation, with pictures, originally intended for use with the Nahuatl materials listed elsewhere.)
