Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Religion or rarely religiosity is the relationship of man to the sacred through which man transcends his experience of external reality. In a narrow sense, religion is a belief in one or more gods.
This relationship is created by the geographical and cultural framework in which it is found. Its diversity is witnessed by countless religious ideas around the world. At present, people's religious ideas are not so much bound by geographical location and tradition because of the simple spread of religious thought around the world.
Religion is mostly not of a static nature, although the dogmatic ideas of some religious movements try to preserve it to some extent. Individual religious systems go through different metamorphoses, from simple, anthropomorphic ideas of polytheistic tribal deities to the notions of God in monotheistic religions, or, in the case of some Eastern religions, even to systems in which the notion of God is completely absent.
Course contents:
