Why does it matter that Jesus lived and died under imperial rule? How did Christian ideas shape the modern world? How has the Bible been used to dominate and exclude, and how has it been used to resist? Explore these and other questions in RE 130: Christianity-an introduction to what is arguably world history’s most consequential tradition. Local field trips offer first-hand familiarity with Christianity’s surprising diversity across lines of race, gender, and class. Next taught in Block 6 by Prof. Devaka Premawardhana.

Are you a graduating senior with a GPA of 3.7 (A-) or higher? You might be eligible for election to Phi Beta Kappa, one of the highest honors the College bestows on graduates. But you need to apply to graduate if you hope to be considered. Get on Banner soon and apply, if you have not already! Even if you are not in the A- range – apply to graduate. Many awards and honors are given to seniors, but if you are not in the pool of graduating seniors, you won’t be considered.
