FYSP 130 - Seeing War and Peace through Religious Traditions

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, WINT

While recourse to war seems inevitable, religious traditions have sought to define criteria that limit warfare or have created space for commitments to political nonviolence. In this course, we will explore the sources of just war and pacifist positions in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism as well as current religious and secular arguments for these positions. Throughout the course, we will also analyze several films that bring to life the realities of war and conditions that often lead to war or nonviolent resistance. Film viewing is required.

Enrollment Limit: 15
