Theology

A course refers to a specialized study program. It usually takes place on campus but can be delivered online. Courses are popular for people who want to get specific knowledge in one subject.

Theology studies the nature of divinity through reviewing a variety of religious and philosophical beliefs. It is sometimes, but not necessarily, studied in order to work within a specific religion. Courses included can be comparative religion, philosophy and spiritual scripture, as well as religion’s effects on history, economics and politics.

Japan Lutheran Theological Seminary

Japan Lutheran College
Campus Full time April 2019 Japan Tokyo

Although the economy and science and technology have developed wonderfully, it is a world that can not be realized that each and every human being became happy. Rather, the sum of people weakened, the number of people who suffered from the heart has increased, and the purpose of life is difficult to see. Love is cold, hope is getting uncertain. Even religion is an era that can be seen with stinging eyes. [+]

Japan Lutheran Theological SeminaryEvangelists who convey the gospel of human liberation, pastor who brings healing of the soul

Although the economy and science and technology have developed wonderfully, it is a world that can not be realized that each and every human being became happy. Rather, the sum of people weakened, the number of people who suffered from the heart has increased, and the purpose of life is difficult to see. Love is cold, hope is getting uncertain. Even religion is an era that can be seen with stinging eyes. That is why I want to look deeply at human beings, in front of the absolute god, in the light, to listen to God's word to regain true humanity. Prayers and storytellers are necessary so that love and compassion, righteousness and peace will be added to this world, so that we can release ourselves from the crime of eroding human beings and restore the joyful freshness to the soul. The seminary will train pastors for that purpose.... [-]

Course in Religion and Conflict

Online Part time 6 weeks October 2018 United Kingdom UK Online

Many conflicts in the world today are framed in terms of religion, but there is much discussion and confusion concerning the precise role religion plays in these conflicts. [+]

Many conflicts in the world today are framed in terms of religion, but there is much discussion and confusion concerning the precise role religion plays in these conflicts. According to some, conflict and violence are inherent to religion. Others claim that religion is only the guise under which social, economic or political conflicts are fought out. The first step to solving religiously framed conflicts is understanding the role of religion in them, and that is what this free online course is about.

Our point of departure is that religion means different things in different circumstances and to different (groups of) people. Therefore, the aim of this course is to show how a religiously framed conflict can be studied in the wider cultural and political contexts of these conflicts. In the course material, we will refer to various religious, cultural and political settings. In addition, we invite you to engage in some modest research activities in your own environment and compare your own findings with those of fellow students.... [-]


Course in Buddhism and Modern Psychology

The Dalai Lama has said that Buddhism and science are deeply compatible and has encouraged Western scholars to critically examine both the meditative practice and Buddhist ideas about the human mind. A number of scientists and philosophers have taken up this challenge. There have been brain scans of meditators and philosophical examinations of Buddhist doctrines. There have even been discussions of Darwin and the Buddha: Do early Buddhist descriptions of the mind, and of the human condition, make particular sense in light of evolutionary psychology? This course will examine how Buddhism is faring under this scrutiny. Are neuroscientists starting to understand how meditation “works”? Would such an understanding validate meditation—or might physical explanations of meditation undermine the spiritual significance attributed to it? And how are some of the basic Buddhist claims about the human mind holding up? We’ll pay special attention to some highly counterintuitive doctrines: that the self doesn't exist, and that much of perceived reality is in some sense illusory. Do these claims, radical as they sound, make a certain kind of sense in light of modern psychology? And what are the implications of all this for how we should live our lives? Can meditation make us not just happier, but better people?... [-]
