Across the globe, people have asked questions such as:

  • Where/How did the world begin?
  • Who are we?
  • What is our purpose is in life?

These questions, when viewed through the prism of different religious traditions, have a variety of answers. Throughout human history, religion has played a role in history, literature and current events.  Without a basic understanding of various religious traditions, students often can’t relate to what they read in fiction and non-fiction texts.   In this survey class, we will explore some of the major faiths practiced by people worldwide.  For each one studied, we will learn about:

  • Sacred objects
  • Festivals
  • Traditions
  • Sacred places
  • Rites of passage. 

Together, we will discuss in class a variety of religions and cultural connections.  The class is highly interactive.  Students are expected to participate.

 

NOTE:

Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
