Hartford Seminary

Introduction to Christianity and Islam (DI-508)

These religions will be explored thematically, with students investigating founding principles, major figures, seminal writings, observed practices, structural institutions, impacts on society, and developments in the modern period.  Required readings will include scriptural passages and other foundational texts (creeds, hadith) of both faith systems.  Besides a term paper of 12-15 pages focusing on the religious tradition other than the student’s own, criteria for student evaluation will include written summaries of assigned readings submitted weekly, participation in classroom discussions, and attendance.
