The chronological scope of the course encompasses the past 3,000 years, with equal weight given to both ancient and modern Andean religions. Major themes to be studied include: ritual sacrifice, ritual sex, apocalyptic narratives, the veneration of mummified ancestors, Inca religion, the Spanish Inquisition in the Americas, Catholic anti-idolatry campaigns and colonial messianic movements.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
