Sociologists define religion as “a system of beliefs and rituals that bind people together to what they consider sacred.” Sacred things are those that evoke an attitude of awe and reference. This course looks at what Christians consider sacred, such as the Bible, the Trinity, the Christian church and ritual sacraments. Additionally, the course examines how sacred Christian rituals and beliefs have impacted society throughout the past millennium. All personal religious views will be respected; students will learn the commonly-held beliefs of Christians, the basic differences in beliefs among the three major movements within Christianity (Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestantism), and to identify these various Christian beliefs as they appear in the world today.
