Beliefs about the supernatural are found in all known societies. This course surveys some of the religious systems found in cultures around the world, past and present, familiar and exotic.
In the fall semester, we will look at the major world religions, such as Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, and more.
In the spring semester, there is an option for college credit with an online college course covering beliefs and practices related to magic, witchcraft, and divination, as well as those related to shamanism, supernatural beings, rituals, and reform movements. Anthropological theories of the origins and functions of supernaturalistic beliefs are also examined.
This class also has an optional college course attached at Ventura College.
