This course is an inquiry into the origin, meaning, and evolution of the three following monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This goal is accomplished through an analysis of the following basic concepts as they pertain to: the beliefs of these three as concerns the divine; their respective heritages and spiritual practices; and the many forms each of these religions takes within its own nexus (for example, historical alterations). Or put differently, interest is in exploring the way of life, structure, practice, and historical reality of each of these three great monotheistic religions.
