This course will explore world religions through their various scriptures. We will read excerpts from the Talmud, the Koran, Sikhism's Adi Granth, some Buddhist Sutras, Hindu hymns from the Rig Veda, all of Daoism's concise Book of the Way, and conclude with selections from the Analects of Confucius. We will discuss how these sacred texts inform each tradition's piety and how some groups incorporate the books into their community's ritual and cultural lives.
