Religion in Higher Education The Politics of the Multi-Faith Campus

Religion in Higher Education The Politics of the Multi-Faith Campus

Author: Sophie Gilliat-Ray Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/09/2019

This title was first published in 2000. The place of religion in universities and institutes of higher education has become increasingly topical and contested in recent years, largely due to the growth of religious diversity on campus. Issues such as shared worship spaces, equal opportunities, and the management of inter-religious conflict, concern university administrators and students alike. Based on primary empirical research, this book indicates the need for clear guidelines on these issues and provides the data to inform policy-making. Offering the first study of the practical and sociological implications of the multi-faith campus, this book provides a context for examining some of the dynamics of religious diversity in Britain more generally as well as providing a useful analysis for the wider international context. Key themes covered include: religion in institutions; inter-faith relations; the changing roles of religious professionals; secularisation and resacralisation; and religion, youth and identity.

Black God Afroasiatic Roots of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim Religions

Black God Afroasiatic Roots of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim Religions

Author: Julian Baldick Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/09/2019

It is argued that just as there is a common Afroasiatic language family, so too there is a common Afroasiatic family of religions. There is an inner logic to be found in myths, folk-tales, rituals, customs and beliefs as far apart as Yemen and Nigeria which go back to an ancient past shared by the Bible and the pharaohs. Using the method of comparative mythology, the author sifts through the work of scholars - including anthropologists, religious historians, archaeologists and classical Greek writers and contemporary comments on them by professional Egyptologists - to build his picture of the Afroasiatic heritage, and how much of it is still with us in modern Western thought.

Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose for being alive? I came to the Mayan archaeological site at Kabah asking these questions. There, the Guardian of the Wisdom of the Stones, Na'at Tun, gave me the answers I sought. This is a record of our conversations.
