REL 235 - Gods in Transit: The Spread of Religions in Asia


FDR: HU
Credits: 3
This course looks at how deities and religious ideas and practices spread from one place to another through conquest, a network of holy men, or a circuit of traders. The aim is to identify (a) the processes that occur when religions travel from one region to another, and (b) the role of these religions in creating new cultures shared across a wide area. The focus is mainly on premodern periods, but comparisons are made with religious pluralism and globalization in the modern world. Lubin.
