Strategies in the Study of Religions PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Strategies in the Study of Religions free pdf These previously scattered texts by Michael Pye are landmarks in the development of the study of religions, presented here as an international enterprise with roots in both European and East Asian culture. Following fundamental papers on method and theory in the first volume, this second volume uses case studies to explore a number of themes such as tradition, innovation, and syncretism. Wider themes such as civil identity, dialogue, and religious education illustrate the general relevance of the study of religions. The seven sections spanning both volumes are well designed for use in seminar assignments.
