PL 116 Medieval Religions and Thought (Spring: 3)

Cross Listed with TH116
Satisfies the Cultural Diversity Core requirement.
The medieval world of philosophy and theology was a multicultural world: Arabian, Jewish, and Christian thinkers, representing the world's three great religions, adapted and shared the philosophical riches of the classical world and the religious resources of the biblical heritage. This course introduces students to the great Arabian thinkers Alfarabi, Avicenna, Algazel, and Averroes; the respected Jewish authors Saadiah Gaon, Moses Maimonides, and Gersonides; and the famous Christian writers Anselm, Bonaventure, and Thomas Aquinas; as well as the intellectual challenges from the Greek intellectual world that they met and faced in the Middle Ages.
