REL 3930 ST History of Religion: Sex and God

Religion concerns all aspects of human life: birth, death, food, power, wealth, and sex. This course examines how sexual taboos and practices help structure and maintain a community and how they share features with these other types of social and ritual practices. We will examine how religions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, an dBuddhism have used proscriptions and prescriptions about sex and gender to determine who has power, how gender is enacted, how genders interact, reproduction, family structures, marriage, and celibacy.
