Cursusdoelen
At the end of this course you will: 
  • have basic knowledge of the most important anthropological theories of religion;
  • have insight into religious phenomena from an anthropological perspective;
  • be able to interpret some relevant anthropological theories and can apply them in a concrete setting.
Inhoud

This course introduces you to the anthropology of religion, which is the anthropological study of religion. You will become familiar with influential, anthropological theories of religion, both classical and contemporary. We will also discuss the comparative and ethnographic methods that anthropologists employ in studying religious phenomena. As we will apply the anthropological approaches to a variety of topics, such as sacrifice, religious language, witchcraft and mortuary rituals, you learn about the diversity between and within religions. We will pay special attention to the local and practiced nature of religion, religion as it is being lived.
