HIS 1500G - Roots of the Modern World: Society and Religion.

(3-0-3) Ancient Religion and Society: This course will explore the historical origins of the world’s great religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will study the “founders” of each faith and the central beliefs of each group, and analyze the conflicts (spiritual, social and political), that promoted changes of beliefs and practices over time. HIS 1500G is a general education course open to all EIU students. The electronically delivered version of HIS 1500G was created to satisfy the general education requirement in Humanities and Fine Arts for students enrolled in on-line delivery only. Students enrolled at EIU’s Charleston campus may not take the electronically-delivered version of this course. H2 900; H5 904N WI
