REL 271 Religious Traditions and Culture
This course explores how religion interacts with, challenges, and is challenged by other aspects of human cultural life including art, politics, and ethics. The development of and connections between religious traditions and theological beliefs are investigated and examined from a historical and analytical perspective.
Some versions of the course focus on larger traditions and cultural groups (i.e., Judaism, Christianity), others focus on features across many traditions (i.e., evangelism, secrecy, revelation).
Course may be repeated if different focus is used in different semester (i.e., Buddhism, Protestant Christianity, cult movements). Prerequisite: FCO 105
3 credit hours
