Major - Religion and Violence

RLCT 2056  Religion and Violence


Any 18 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




While most religious traditions espouse doctrines of non-violence, history bears witness to a longstanding association between religion and personal and collective episodes of violence and conflict. Through a consideration of both Western and Eastern religious traditions this course will consider the beliefs, doctrines and ideologies which support violent behavior despite doctrines of non-violence. This course may be credited to Gender Equality and Social Justice.
