A Guide to the Supplementary Resources for 2015-2017

Below you will find supplementary resources for The Comparison Project’s 2015-2017 theme of Theologies of Death and Rituals of Dying. These resources come from students in Prof. Knepper’s Fall 2015 Comparative Religions course, Spring 2016 Philosophy of Religion course, Fall 2016 Comparative Religions course, and Spring 2017 Philosophy of Religion course.

The Fall 2015 Comparative Religions course examined theologies of death and rituals of dying in Tibetan Buddhism, the “cult” of Santa Muerte, and Christianity.

The Spring 2016 Philosophy of Religion course also examined Tibetan Buddhism and Catholic Christianity, but also studied Jainism and Secular Humanism.
