Comparative Religions

This class begins by looking at the basic unifying beliefs that form the foundations of the religions and cults throughout history. It then takes a historical and systematic approach to the study of the major world religions that one is most likely to encounter. In addition to this, it looks at how these beliefs have shaped the culture we live in today.

I strongly recommend that you listen to the audio for the different religions in chronological order as this is how the class was specifically designed and taught.
