This course provides a historical examination of key concepts, major questions, and practices about humanity's search for happiness from the Hellenistic-Roman period of Antiquity through the Early Christian and Medieval periods. The content centers on the role of Classical moral philosophy and Christian theology in the formulation of eudaemonic theories about the problem of happiness in relation to metaphysical and religious influences as well as to socio-cultural, political, and institutional norms and practices that shaped Christian notions of human purpose and potential. The legacies of these ancient ideas on the development of modern assumptions about happiness and human flourishing will also be discussed towards the end of the course.

Resisting an Area Studies approach to theological studies in the First/Third World paradigm of the Cold War, this course adopts Alina Sajed’s definition of Global South as including necropolitical zones in the North” characterized by exploitation, oppression and neocolonial relations” while unpacking the neocolonial activity of historic Third World nation-states in East Asia and the Arabian Peninsula. Readings will include texts incorporating liberationist, anti/post/decolonial, anticapitalist, feminist, queer, indigenous, and Marxist lenses. Theoretical texts will counterbalance theological writings to assess their liberative potentialities whilst also acknowledging their limitations.

We understand religion as present both within and outside the bounds of conventional religious traditions. In this course, then, religion includes Judaism and ancient Israelite religion, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Indigenous religion, but also ecofeminism and ecowomanism, nature writing, and environmentalism. Topics include humans’ relationships with “nature” and the land as they are practiced, ritualized, and textualized; the role of religions in environmental destruction and in ecological thriving; and the development of eco-spiritual perspectives.

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.
