CREL 230/2607 - Pilgrimage Traditions in the World’s Religions (3 cr.)



Description
This course examines pilgrimage as a unifying theme in exploration of human religiosity. While we will focus on what are called “ritual pilgrimages”, such as the Islamic hajj, we will also explore pilgrimage more metaphorically, by looking at the allegorical, mythological, and visionary journeys. As frameworks for our analyses, we will also look at humanistic and social scientific interpretive and theoretical models concerning pilgrimage.
