Courses: Reading Sacred Texts (WRPRH128B01)
This course will explore how Islam, Christianity, and Judaism represent the sacred in biblical, medieval, and modern culture. We will investigate a wide range of texts, including written works, photography, images, icons, film, and sculpture. Reading sacred texts is a visual practice, and we want to understand better how perception, idolatry, and representation in all three traditions inform notions of the sacred.
Prerequisites: Open only to first-year students as assigned by the Director of College Writing.
