Religious faith is expressed through language and artistic communication. In this course, students will investigate some of the major themes in the interaction between religion and the arts. They will then look at a selection of case studies of religious traditions and their use of artistic communication genres. Having looked at the use of music, visual art, drama, dance, oral verbal arts, and other arts domains as applied by practitioners of various religious traditions, students will then investigate the use of the arts in the religious life of their chosen research communities.
Note: This course requires access to an internet connection capable of supporting Zoom class meetings that will be scheduled around students’ availability.
