THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM:
HOW JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY, AND ISLAM HAVE SHAPED THE MIDDLE EAST AND OUR WORLD
The history of the modern world has been a story of both conflict and the melding of cultures. Three monotheistic religions have played an outsized role in the evolution of the Western World: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. How have these religions and the cultures they embrace led us to where we are today? How has each molded the way we think about each other? This course will examine the impact of religion on contemporary Middle Eastern culture. The course will focus on specific national settings where religion has played a decisive role: Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Israel. Internal divisions and tensions will be explored as well as inter-religious conflicts.
