HIST 202 - Religions in Conflict and Dialogue: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam | GEGA


This is an historically-oriented analysis of the Semitic or Near Eastern monotheisms (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) from their common roots in the sacred stories of the patriarch Abraham to their often contentious and ecumenical relationships as global communities in the contemporary world.

This course explores the complex and often-troubled relationship between the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religious communities. In this course, we will evaluate the historical and social dynamics of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to understand how each has contributed to cooperation and conflict within the global community. We will consider whether religious belief is an important cause of religious, ethnic, and gender intolerance, and we will examine ways in which members of these religions have shaped their traditions in response to experiences of intolerance. Finally, we will formulate proposals about how best to respond to the religious dimensions of social and political problems. This course fulfills the Global Awareness  requirement of the General Education  program.
