Anthropology of Religion (Special Retake)

Probably no other phenomenon has captured the human imagination more than religion. The belief in supernatural forces, or “beings”, is almost universal but has taken on different shades and meanings in different localities. The purpose of this module is to explore various manifestations of religious phenomena around the globe and to underline what anthropology has to offer to the study of religion. Attention is drawn in particular to the history of the spread of Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism across the globe and the concessions these world religions have made to the local popular beliefs they have encountered in different societies and cultures.
