RELN 203 - Sacred Texts of the West

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Through critical reading of selections from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Qur’an, students will become familiar with the content of these texts; students will engage in the critical interpretation of these sacred texts; and students will be introduced to the methods and theories that support the academic study of sacred texts and narratives. Not limited in historical context and scope, students will be introduced to the social and historical factors that influenced the development of each canon in its original context as well as examining how religious communities work to ensure the continued relevance of their sacred texts and narratives.

Note(s): This course has been approved for Core Curriculum credit in Humanities.
