ID : 81627   
« back to classes page
One thing common for all religions is the need for something tangible through which to express one’s faith. This course will deal with the sources, meaning and importance of relics, saints, pilgrimage and other expressions of faith found in world’s religions. The emphasis will be on the most important relics within Judaism (the Ark of the Covenant), and Christianity: The Cross, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, among others. We will deal with sacred stones and other relics found in many religions. The basic format of the class will be lecture usually followed by a film, some documentary, some for fun. This course is not meant to be judgmental but to look at human needs in the light of our need for tangible ways of experiencing life and faith.
