    Texting God

    TR 8:30—10:10 AM, #14939

    Professor Catherine Murphy

    Fulfills RTC 1 Requirement

    This course explores how people express their beliefs and how the technologies they use shape what they say. Focusing on Jewish, Christian and Muslim "texts" (oral and written), it examines how communities determine what counts as scripture, the core beliefs they inscribe in them, the mechanisms they develop for adapting them, and the conflicts that erupt when interpretations collide. It examines how the media through which scripture was disseminated shaped spirituality, and asks how current technologies are altering our experiences of text, of scripture, and of our relationships with God.
