Introduction to the Study of World Religions



Volume I, by Mark Luttio, is an introductory look at the religions of the world from a historical perspective, focusing especially on the culture and geography of each religion and their respective practices which express the essential core of each tradition. In addition to an introductory chapter on the nature of religion, and a concluding chapter on the future of religion, an examination will be made of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Shinto, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and New Religious Movements. Volume II, by Sophia Stone, will primarily be composed of original sacred text central to each religious tradition, with commentary on its central meaning. The focus will be philosophical nature, looking especially at the key questions in our Dialogues of Learning core curriculum—ethics, knowledge, and origins pertinent to each of the religions covered in Volume I. Course: HUM 335
