Introduction

This seminar approaches the field of comparative religion beginning with an introduction to the discipline of hermeneutics and moving afterwards to an analysis of major thematic issues in sacred texts, using a multi-disciplinary approach.

Students are expected to both do in-depth readings on these topics, to demonstrate a serious consideration of the pertinent issues in essay writing, and to participate in the seminar by leading or facilitating discussion around these issues as pedagogical practice. The seminar also features guest lecturers who have academic interests in the specific topics featured in the syl- labus.
