Litterae et Religio: Global Religious Literatures

HOUSECS 59.17

Fall 2021

Meeting details TBA

Join us on an adventure ambitious in scale across space and time as we explore the many different representations of religious belief, emotion, and intellect that have populated the globe. The method is simple: Each week we examine the Origins (scripture and myths) of a religious tradition and how those fundamentals have been interpreted by those in the Past (before modernity) and the Present (closer to our time). Global religious literature is grasped as a continuous dialogue between and within traditions through an innumerable set of mediums and visions. Our goal is to sample, share, and learn from these streams at a breakneck pace.
