Reading Hindu Texts Interreligiously III: The Brhadaranyaka Upanisad with Sankara's Commentary in Translation
Francis X. Clooney, SJ
This seminar is for students interested in the study of primary Indian/Hindu texts, read in translation and in the context of a comparative dynamic of reading religiously across the boundaries of traditions. The Brhadaranyaka Upanisad, Sankara's commentary on it (plus excerpts from Suresvara's Vartikas), will be read (in English) along with short examples from Christian theological/commentarial literature. No language prerequisite, but students who know Sanskrit will be encouraged to make use of their expertise. It is part of a series, but it is not necessary to have taken prior seminars.
Enrollment Limited: Limited to 15 students. Instructor's permission required.
Open to BTI Students: Yes
Jointly offered as Religion 1660
Expected to be offered Spring 2015
