IPI5/717 – Inter-religious visions of the End Times
View outline (PDF) Instructor(s): Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan Kaplan
Eschatological themes feature prominently in contemporary religious discourse, politics, and the arts. These themes are rooted in longstanding religious traditions about messianic hopes, day of judgment, and perfection of the soul. This course offers an opportunity to receive credit for attending and participating in VST’s Inter-Religious Studies Conference on the theme “Visions of the End Times,” May 23-25, 2017.
Two additional class meetings (May 12th and June 2nd) will held to discuss writings by the keynote speaker (Dr. Lionel Corbett), selected conference papers, and our own responses.
Note: Conference attendance is mandatory. However, the additional 2 classes can be joined via Adobe Connect for off-site students.
