RELI 3240 - Religion in the Americas I

3 hours
Prerequisites: ENGL 1101  with a grade of “C-” or better.
How have religions-originating in the Middle East and Asia-changed as they have taken root in the Americas? How have indigenous American cultures been effected by colonialism and earlier missionaries? This course examines movements, personalities, and practices of religious traditions throughout the Americas. The Americas have been sites of conflict, compromise, and creativity. In the modern period, many indigenous peoples seek recovery of pre-Christian African and Native American traditions and many others turn to new religious options like Pentecostalism. Particular attention will be paid to cultural intersections in Appalachia and the American South.
