REL 213 - Christian Traditions

4 credits (Fall)
This course explores what Christians have believed about God, humanity, time, and creation, by focusing on how they have believed their central doctrines. We look at the political and cultural contexts in which specific beliefs have become meaningful and indispensable for Christian communities through particular struggles, practices, authorities, and rituals. The purpose of the course is to consider how Christians have discovered meanings that have guided their many vocations in the world, as individuals and as communities. To do this, we consider historical and contemporary cases.

Prerequisite: REL 111 , or second-year standing.
