A227 Exploring religion

The module challenges various widely held assumptions about religions and the study of religion, and engages students with three core questions: What is religion? How do we study religion? Why should we study religion?

John will talk about how this module offers an accessible and cutting-edge introduction to the study of religions, exploring places, practices, texts and experiences.

Further information on the module can be found here.
