Study of Religion | Unit 4: Home




Students consider how religion affects and influences people's understanding of culture, history, politics and social interaction. Within this context, issues of rights and religion-state relationships are considered. Students investigate how religions seek to shape or are shaped by their social, cultural and political contexts. They examine how the dynamic of religion in different times and places has interacted with the nation-state, as well as religion's contributions to society and culture.
