Specifically, the course explores the origin and evolving use of the concepts of "Satan" and "antichrist" within Judaism and Christianity.

Consideration is also given to the ways in which choices made about how to image evil influence the world views, behaviors, and belief systems of individuals, religious traditions, and cultures. The course draws on scholarship, literature, and film, in addition to off campus visits to two museums. No prerequisites. Field Trip Course Fee: Additional course fee of $26 will be charged at time of registration to cover admission fees to two museums in addition to tuition.
