Religious Studies Course (Distance Education)

RLST 2395 E – Women, Religion and Spirituality

This course is an exploration of the role and perception of women primarily in the western religious tradition from ancient times to the present. The course examines the influence of religious tradition upon the status of women in various historical periods. The modern meeting of Christianity and feminism is then examined through an in-depth discussion of such current issues as birth control, abortion, violence against women and the ordination of women. The course also studies personal narratives which reflect the influence of religion on the current experience of women in society. RLST 2395 may be counted as 6 credits towards a concentration in Women’s Studies. (lec 3) cr 6
