RELN 381 - Religion and Experiences of Death and Dying

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Prerequisites: 3 hours in Religious Studies.
Religion and Death critically examines a significant dimension of religious life. Death, the great unknown, awaits us all. One of the chief functions of religions is to ease the anxiety and pain of being mortal. How and how well is this accomplished? To answer, students will explore supernaturalist treatments of death across cultures and time, e.g., funeral rites, descriptions of hell, ghost beliefs, and Near-Death Experiences.
