Religious Studies at Kenyon

The study of religion at Kenyon is intrinsically global and interdisciplinary. The faculty’s areas of expertise range from the history of early Christianity to Buddhist philosophy, from Sufi practices to Rastafari, and from ancient Judaism to religion and sci-fi and religion and pop music. The department’s courses use diverse disciplinary approaches, including philosophy, sociology, history, and anthropology, to think through questions about how different religious traditions have intersected with themes as varied as gender, social and political power, nature, death, communal life, psychology and concepts of the transcendent.
