Course Description

This course offers a History of Religion from the earliest known periods up to Christianity. The course offers comparisons of various belief systems, including some of the groups often referred to as 'cults'. The subject is treated from a broad-minded point of view in an effort to look for the basic truth upon which each religion was founded and to note the similarities and differences among them. An understanding of the older religions offers the student a better comprehension of Modern Thought.

Knowledge of religious history helps the student gain consciousness of the Universality of all Truth. Understanding of other religious beliefs fosters a better understanding of other individuals, nations and races.
