Harvard Launches Free online courses on Religious Literacy: Traditions and Scriptures

About this course

The study of religion is the study of a rich and fascinating dimension of human experience that includes but goes well beyond beliefs and ritual practices. In this religion course, learners explore case studies about how religions are internally diverse, how they evolve and change through time, and how religions are embedded in all dimensions of human experience. We’ll explore these tenets through the lens of scripture and through themes such as gender and sexuality, art, violence and peace, science, and power and authority.

Join me and peers from around the world to embark on this journey to better understand religion in human affairs.

This is the first religion course in a series of World Scriptures courses from HarvardX:
