RUSS 205: The Russian Religious Mind

Term: Fall

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements: F1 F4

This course examines the distinct world-consciousness of Russian religious thought, with its emphases on the themes of God, good and evil, the search for divine justice on Earth, the material world as sanctified, and the moral content of spiritualized beauty.  Reading materials will be taken from the religio-philosophical writings of distinguished thinkers, Orthodox presentations of major points of dogmatic theology, and monastic wisdom past and present.  All works are read in English translation.

Prerequisites: none.
