REL 19.18 From the Sacred to Salvation: The Place of Religion in Human Societies

This course examines religions as cultural systems that give shape and meaning to people's lives and provide them a means, in the form of rituals, to affect their worlds and themselves. The emphasis is on understanding non-Western religions, especially local traditions, through the interpretation of myth, ritual, and symbolism. The relationship of religion to political power and ideology is also explored.
