SOCI 331 - SOCIOLOGY OF RELIGION
A sociological examination of the religious experience. This course studies institutional and non-institutional systems of belief, practice, organization, and the ways in which these systems shape the behavior of adherents through particular rules of conduct. Using examples from various religions as they have emerged historically, we will explore changes in interpretations of the sources of religion. Diversity of views has often led to internal discord and sometimes major conflicts within religious groups and organizations (i.e., feminist and liberation theologies) as alternatives to traditional approaches. The course will also look at how ideas of the sacred have permeated culture and informed the philosophies of so many social and political movements.
