RELS 241 - Religions of the West


3 Credits
The events of the past quarter century have demonstrated that it is difficult, if not impossible, to understand the modern world without taking into account the influence that religions have had upon their adherents. The religio-ethnic conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, the tensions between Jews and Palestinians in the Middle East, the Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland, the Shiite and Sunni Muslims in Iraq underscore the impact of religious beliefs in the modern world. This course is a comprehensive approach to the study of how the beliefs, practices and moral codes of Judaism, Christianity and Islam influence how nations and individuals behave in daily life, culture, ethics and politics. (LAS) (RE) (CORE: Religion)
Other: Does not satisfy the LAS requirement if used to fulfill Mission requirement.
