REL 266 - Apocalyptic “Sectuality”

4 credits
What is the meaning of this age? Are we standing at the dawn of a golden age in history? Or are we at the brink of global destruction and the end of history? In this class, we will take an interdisciplinary approach to examine selected apocalyptic movements and texts in an attempt to understand how meaning is constructed. We will discuss several early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic texts and communities as well as modern apocalyptic communities.

Prerequisite: REL 101 , REL 102 REL 103 REL 104 REL 105 , or second-year standing.
Note: Not offered every year.
