Religious Pluralism in a Contemporary World

Flinders University

Sturt Road, Bedford Park

15 January 2018 - 30 January 2018

Event details

Australians have all kinds of religious beliefs, and many have none at all. What does it mean to live in a society where religious pluralism is encouraged? How can we learn to understand one another and work together?

This topic explores foundational knowledge of the major beliefs and practices of several world religions: Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese Religions, Judaism and Islam. You will have the opportunity to reflect critically on religion today, particularly in contemporary Australia. We will explore primary texts (scriptures) and the experience of ordinary believers.

The unit is presented over three weeks in January in bursts of three consecutive days per week (Jan 15-17, 22-24, 29-30).
