Religious Traditions in Canada

Designation: CHUR 7023

This seminar course explores the many formative influences on the development of distinctive features in Canadian religious life such as: the role of the church in French Canada; Western revivalism and the rise of new political parties; religion and education; the spread of non-Christian religious groups; and the increasing confrontation between religious and secular forces. Beginning with an examination of the present culture and church in Canada, the course will trace the developments of the various traditions from about the time of Confederation to the present.
