Religion plays a significant role in diverse cultural, social, and political contexts. Religious worldviews, values, and symbols play a critical role in shaping cultural norms, traditions, and practices. This is the case both in religiously plural contexts, as well as those dominated by particular traditions. The contours of religion are evident not only in the artifacts that transmit a culture’s heritage (such as architecture, visual arts, illuminated manuscripts, literature, etc.) but also in contemporary debates about the evolving identities of societies in a world characterized by religious pluralism. Students on this course will be engaged with contemporary debates about, for example, the nature and impact of political religion, religion, and modernity, religion and gender, religion and violence, religion and human rights, and ethics in politics.
Religion: The course for you? This course offers you a choice of three possible directions of study after your first year. The first is a broad-based study of Religion and Theology, the second is a specialization in the Cultural Study of Religion, and the third is in Christian Theology. Within the Cultural Study of Religion, you have the opportunity to explore the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the religions of Asia and Africa, as well as new atheistic and religious movements. If you choose to specialize in Theology, you can investigate the development of Christian self-understanding in a number of different modes, including denominational, multidenominational, and ecumenical aspects.
