IFL 621 - Interfaith Lifecycle and Holidays (formerly REL 621)

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all share common human lifecycle events, and these are commemorated in rituals for birth, entering adulthood, marriage, and death. In addition, the three Abrahamic faiths observe holy days, celebrations, and fast days and follow religious observances specified in their religious calendars. This course will review the major lifecycle events and holy days of the three religious traditions and will emphasize the similarities they all share.
