RELS203 - THE RELIGIOUS OTHER

This course explores attitudes toward monotheists of other faiths, and claims made about these "religious others" -- their bodies, habits and beliefs -- in real and imagined encounters between Jews, Christians and Muslims from antiquity to the present. Primary source readings from law, theology, literature, art and polemics. Attention will be paid to myths about the other, inter-group violence, converts and cases of cross-cultural influence both conscious and unconscious.
