Religions of the Axial Age

Religions of the Axial Age (800 TO 200 B.C.E.)

2nd & 4th Weds.: Jan 9 & 23, Feb 13 & 27, Mar 13 & 27;

7-9 pm

Location: Fireside Room

What could the beliefs and traditions of a Zoroastrian, a person of Jewish faith, a Buddhist, a follower of Confucius, and a Christian have in common? How do religions evolve over time? This course offers a rare opportunity to relate your own spiritual questions to a variety of ancient quests for meaning and transcendence.

Bill Hilton will introduce the series of short lectures by Professor Mark W. Muesse, of Rhodes College, recorded on DVDs by The Teaching Company.

We will learn the historical conditions in which the world religions arose, and see how each religion answered shared metaphysical and human dilemmas. The course helps us think about specific traditions while pondering the common processes of religious development.
