Comments
This course introduces the world's religious systems and their cultural bases. The course will pay particular attention to religions significant to the world at large. That includes at least three religious traditions among Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, or others. The emphasis on each of these religions can vary from year to year. In The overall emphasis of this course will be on examining the expression of some primary characteristics of religion in primary sources from these religious traditions. We will focus specifically on the ways in which ideas about the sacred are formed and how they are used to order experience, with a focus on space, time, and story. All of these, in turn, are part of imagining, or thinking of, deity. We will then look at how these ordering concepts are used to formulate guidelines for daily life, as expressed in scripture, ritual, cosmogony, conceptions of the deity, and ethics. Any questions please contact the Department of Jewish Thought at jewish-thought@buffalo.edu
