Religious Studies | Religions of East Asia: Sacred Mountains of Asia
R554 | 26647 | H. Blair


Meets with R452

Mountains have been and remain important sites for religious
practices in Asian religions, but they are also often objects of
reverence and devotion in their own right.  This discussion-
intensive seminar examines the roles mountains play in religious
thought and practice, as well as in the academic discipline of
religious studies.  Course materials draw from a variety of genres,
and include films, ethnographies, and pre-modern literature.
