This seminar will offer an encounter with the comparative study of religion as a method, including contemporary discussions of its value, problems, and potential. Starting with a brief historical survey of important comparative approaches, we will read current theoretical works as well as representative works of application. The individual research project will feature the creation of a comparative course syllabus and accompanying rationale.
