The reality of religious diversity at Duke calls for numerous and varied opportunities for thoughtful, intentional interfaith engagement.
Duke’s interfaith engagement is strengthened by partnerships with a number of local and international interfaith organizations.
Eruditio et Religio Living-Learning CommunityLitterae et Religio: Global Religious Literatures" (HOUSECS 59.17). Students in the class explore the many different representations of religious belief, emotion, and intellect that have populated the globe. Each week the class examines the origins (scripture and myths) of a religious tradition and how those fundamentals have been interpreted by those in the past (before modernity) and the present (closer to our time). Global religious literature is grasped as a continuous dialogue between and within traditions through an innumerable set of mediums and visions. The course was developed in consultation with Dr. Laura Lieber, a professor of religious studies at Duke, and the Rev. Kathryn Lester-Bacon, the Chapel's director of Religious Life.
