This class is an introduction to the religions that have their origin on the subcontinent - Hinduism, Buddhism,Sikhism and tribal religions - as well as those that originated in other regions such as Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism. Organizing this material chronologically rather than teaching it by separate religious traditions facilitates comparisons and promotes an understanding not only of the differences among these religions but also of some of their commonalities in philosophy, theology and praxis.
