REL 195-01 & 02 - Introductory Special Topic: Studying Religion: Europe

4 credits (Fall)
In this course, we approach introductory themes and central questions in the study of religion through examination of significant events, ideas, and tensions in European history and culture, broadly construed. We will examine ways that religions have shaped and been shaped by political and social phenomena, including revolution, philosophy, and art. This exploration allows us to consider a number of religious traditions, while also thinking more broadly about how to understand ”religion” as a category.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Blaber
