Rel 2. Death in Religious Traditions (4)

Introduces students to the study of religion through an exploration of what different religious traditions have to say about the great mystery that we all face, death. Because we all must die, all religions must deal with the challenge and sense of crisis provoked by the deaths of those close to us, of innocent victims of disaster, disease and crime, and our own imminent deaths. Death thus provides an excellent point of comparison among the various religious traditions. (HU)
