LASS 951 - Islam: Religion & Culture

3 credits
This course examines Islamic culture as it is refracted in various religious and literary texts by Muslims from Arabia, Iran (Persia), and India as well as North America. The course begins with discussion of the centrality of prophecy and scripture in Islam, followed by a perusal of Islamic theology and mysticism, and ends with a sampling of primarily literary prose and poetry pieces that provide insights into the multifarious facets of Islamic civilization.
