Crs. Dates: Jun 13–Jun 24, 2016
Credits: 4
Enrollment: 3/35
Synopsis
This course focuses on the main developments and expressions of Hinduism in India. First, we begin with a discussion of the pre-Aryan, indigenous religious context of the Indus Valley, and then turn to the emergence of the Vedas, the earliest stratum of the Hindu tradition. We will then examine the development of the Hindu Upanisads, a highly philosophical genre of literature that significantly questions the religious efficacy of the sacrificial, ritual-based Vedas. Finally, we will turn to the devotional and ritual contexts of the many gods and goddesses, and what is sometimes called "popular Hinduism." along the way, we will explore such major topics as: the changing conceptions of sacrifice; the inquiries into the nature of the self, the nature of the Ultimate, the role and development of devotion; mythology; ritual and its functions; the influence of Buddhism and Islam; and the character of Hinduism in modern India.
