RELG 220 - Myth, Ritual, and Symbol in Religions


Credit(s): 3
The three forms of religious expression—sacred speech, sacred acts, and sacred places—are rooted in myths. The course will explore in wider and deeper ways the mutually supportive relationship of myths, rituals, and symbols. In particular, the course will focus on understanding the significance of myths as authoritative references in Indigenous religions, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and New Religious Movements.
