New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

ASCL 69.04 Chinese Religions in Taiwan

This course examines Chinese religious traditions as practiced in Taiwan. Due to its particular history, Taiwan has preserved a tremendously rich, varied, and complex religious landscape. While most of these religious traditions had originated in China over the previous millennia, their current conditions in Taiwan present us with an almost unique laboratory of traditional religions within contemporary, modern settings.     

 The course surveys developments of traditional Chinese religions and their current practices in Taiwan. We will discuss the diversity and complexity of Chinese religions, the development of popular, Confucian, Daoist and Buddhist traditions and practices in China and their transmission to Taiwan.
