Mark D. Luttio
This course introduces the student to a comparative study of the great religious traditions of the world, seeking to understand their place in history and their impact on the world today. The course will include, among others, a look at Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Shinto, Taoism, as well as Native American and African traditions. The course will aim for breadth and diversity (approaching these religions as "living faith traditions" rather than simply as theoretical ideas), such that the student will be introduced to as wide a range as possible of the world's religions. The research and teaching approach will be especially historical and comparative in nature.
