ANTH 306 - The Amish, The Mennonites and Anabaptism


3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: WC & WI credit.
Challenging the notion of a monolithic Eurocentric influence, this course explores the evolution of one dominant, western, Christian philosophy - Anabaptism - and investigates the way in which this philosophy has influenced widely varying responses to different environmental, cultural, political, and historic conditions. In investigating the cultures of the Amish, Hutterites, and Mennonites, the goal will be to understand better the ways in which a people’s belief system is shaped by particular cultural, economic, and social situations and, in turn, shapes the way in which adherents deal with these situations. As warranted.
