RELG 111 - Judaism, Christianity, Islam


Credit(s): 3
This course introduces students to the central beliefs and practices of three world religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, which are also known as the Abrahamic religions. These religions deeply share in the faith of the Patriarch, Abraham, and this affinity encourages a comparative approach. The course covers each religion’s origins and historical development, concepts of the divine, worldview, sacred texts, main doctrines, and modes of teaching and worship. The course also takes up the diverse cultural contexts of each of the three religions, and the ways in which they have produced remarkable traditions of God, scripture, ethical codes, authority and ritual practices.
