HST 395: World Religion&Spiritual
Prerequisite: Course not open to Freshmen
General Education requirement: Cult&ArtisticLit/GlobAwar/Writ
This course will examine the response of several world religions to the following issues: human origins, purpose (teleology), evil, "redemption" and the "future estate." We will also examine how new religions often sprang from attempts to reform preexisting religious structure, necessitating a radical reinterpretation of the older religion's doctrines and institutions.
