Fall 2019 Luther Highlighted Courses

Be sure to check out the following Fall 2019 Luther Highlighted Courses before your register for classes:

RLST 290BB-L01: Religion, Spirituality, and Health: Beliefs, Practices, Impacts, and Implications
Dr. Volker Greifenhagen

Is being religious an asset for health? Yes, according to some studies. Conversely, some religious beliefs and practices seem to undermine modern medicine. We will explore beliefs and practices regarding health, disease, healing, and mortality in a variety of religious/spiritual traditions from around the world, and examine how these affect, positively and negatively, both individual and community health. We will consider empirical studies of religion and health outcomes, and conclude by asking what kind of place, if any, religious or spiritual considerations should have in the delivery of modern health care, in the practice of doctors and other health care specialists and workers, and in government health care policy. 

PHIL 242-L01: Philosophy of Religion
Dr. Roger Petry

This course examines contemporary philosophical debates about spiritual and religious claims (for example, the existence of God, reincarnation, spiritual energy (qi/chi)), religious experience, and the role of reason in holding spiritual beliefs. In doing so, modern formulations of traditional objections to these claims (such as the problem of evil and non-supernatural explanations for their origins) and the meaningfulness of religious language will be examined. Other topics including ways of intellectually responding to conflicts between religious traditions, the relationship between religion, ethics and politics, and religious and spiritual practices (such as prayer) will also be explored.

HIST 371- L01: Early Modern Culture, Identity, Exchange and Conflict
Dr. Clay Burlingham

Take a journey back in time and explore the depth and breadth of cultural identities, exchanges, and interactions in Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. We will examine the role of religion, ethnicity, race, and class in shaping early modern identities and informing cultural interactions during this period of violent upheaval and change.
