TH 4450 - World Religions

An introduction to the beliefs and practices of four major world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam—through a study of their scriptures and history. The class concentrates on each religion’s views of the Transcendent and of the nature and destiny of the human person. Students read selections from the scriptures and writings of major thinkers in each tradition. A study of the major events in the history of each religion serves as background for a consideration of its contemporary beliefs and practices.
