It has long been suggested that while Western religious traditions are largely rooted in similar Abrahamic traditions, Eastern traditions are more disparate. While it is true that Eastern religious traditions (as defined through historical scholarship) cover a diverse region and carry with them a plethora of cultural differences, there are many converging and overlapping traditions and convictions within these belief systems as well. In exploring these intersections, this course will offer a brief overview of several fascinating Eastern religious traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. The course will be lecture-style format, and will be supported with select documentary programs.
