Three Great Faiths: Commonalties & Conflicts

Description

Islam, Christianity & Judaism.

This course will examine the emergence and development of these three important Abrahamic traditions. This approach is not devotional but draws in on recent scholarship and research outlining the particular features of each faith tradition and explores the commonalities and conflicts between them. Particular attention will be drawn to the impact of fundamentalism on each of these faith traditions.
