Religious Literacy: Traditions and Scriptures

Diane L. Moore, Anna Mudd, HarvardX

Learn how to better understand the rich and complex ways that religions function in historic and contemporary contexts.

The study of religion is the study of a rich and fascinating dimension of human experience that includes but goes well beyond beliefs and ritual practices. In this religion course, learners explore case studies about how religions are internally diverse, how they evolve and change through time, and how religions are embedded in all dimensions of human experience. We’ll explore these tenets through the lens of scripture and through themes such as gender and sexuality, art, violence and peace, science, and power and authority.

Join peers from around the world to embark on this journey to better understand religion in human affairs.
