REL 226 - Religious Traditions of India

4 credits
Indian religion is marked by ongoing dialogues among the South Asian traditions we call Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Islam. The interaction between these traditions shows the ways each has defined itself independently and in response to challenges presented by the others. This course will introduce the historical and philosophical foundations for these traditions, as well as familiarize students with these intersecting traditions as living religions. The course will include special attention to the role of women and the links between religion and politics.

Prerequisite: REL 101 , REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 REL 105 , or second-year standing.
Note: Plus-2 option available.
Instructor: T. Dobe
