ANT 340 - Anthropology of Religion (3 cr.)


Wherever we find people, we find religion - ideas, symbols, and practices that connect our own experiences to the essential nature of the universe. Sometimes these are manifest as formal institutions, sometimes as complexes of myth, magic, and beliefs about spirits. This course explores the broad range of forms that religion can take. It considers how religion may have originated; the structure of ritual and myth; ideas about shamanism, healing, ghosts, and ancestors; and how religions change.
