Published DateWOLFEBORO — The Wolfeboro Public Library will begin hosting a series of lunchtime programs on the nondenominational study of religion on Monday, June 17 at 1 p.m.
The series is based on Professor Charles Jones' DVD lectures on religious studies recorded by The Teaching Company. Each
bi-weekly session will begin with a 30 minute DVD lecture followed by a discussion period. This lunchtime program, moderated by Mike Hodder, is free and open to all.
The study group will cover such topics as what is religion, how does religious studies differ from theology, what can anthropology tell us about the role of religion, and how do gender studies impact religious studies. Along the way the work of Emile Durkheim, Carl Jung, Karl Marx, Mircea Eliade and others will be examined along with their impacts on our understanding of religion and its role in society.
No prior knowledge is required and there will be no set readings. The program is solely designed to offer a chance to study the topic and freely discuss your thoughts with others.
