REL 236 Eastern Christianity (3)

An examination of the second largest Christian confession in the world today, though one that is largely unfamiliar to most Americans--the family of Eastern Orthodox Churches. Eastern Orthodoxy is the dominant religion in Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and the Middle East. This course will consider the history and contemporary map of Orthodoxy as well as examine its distinctive approaches to theology, spirituality, and worship (including icons).
