ISP-THX571 – Religious Pluralism
View outline (PDF)
July 23 – 27
Lecture: 9am – 12pm
Tutorial: 2pm – 5pm
Canada today hopes to welcome multiple religious traditions into the public sphere. Indigenous Canadians are re-discovering traditions and confronting a history of oppression. How should Indigenous people and their fellow travellers participate in religious pluralism? Together, we will develop answers as we use a 5-step model of inter-religious learning to explore Judaism, Islam and Buddhism.
Note: This class includes a field trip to visit a Buddhist Temple. An additional fee of $5.00 per student is required and can be paid on arrival to ISP Summer School.
