Most people in the world practice some form of religion, and most of these religions originated hundreds or even thousands of years ago. This class will introduce students to a number of religious traditions in their classical formulations and their contemporary practices. Students will also explore the academic study of religion, considering how various disciplines approach the myths, stories, symbols, rituals, ideas, and ethical practices of these religions.
