HIS5050 is the fourth obligatory course in the Master's programme in History of Religions. It is a course of comparative religion focusing on the common features of the Abrahamic religions as well as the historical processes that underpin and possibly explain them.
No exemption of this course can be granted.
In order to receive a final assessment, the student must:
- Attend at least 75% of the lectures.
- Participate in the evaluation of the course if such evaluation is stipulated in the relevant term.
Students are expected to read the entire bibliography, including the specific readings relating to individual lectures and seminars.
To gain credit for the course the student must fulfill all the requirements and pass a three-day home exam (2500-3500). The course is assessed with grades A-F.
The primary aim of this course is to introduce students to the systematic study of a group of related religions, applying the methods of analysis specific to the comparative history of religions. Secondly, in an attempt to explain mechanisms of transmission and mutual influence, the course will exemplify a number of theories of religion studied in HIS5010.
Upon completing the course, students are expected to have:
- correct understanding of common doctrines and concepts in Abrahamic religions;
- good overview of the textual sources relating to the abovementioned notions;
- good command of specific technical terminology in the discipline of the history of religions;
- overall understanding of the history and evolution of Abrahamic religions, both individually and as a group;
- ability to integrate a historical approach into the comparative analytic study of a religion system or of a group of religions.
