LTR 5622 Life and Thought of Sun Myung and Hak Ja Han Moon
This seminar presents an outline of the life of Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon from the perspective of Rev. Moon’s understanding of the mission of the Messiah as True Parents, which they undertook. It begins with the Divine Principle explanation of the Messiah’s responsibility to stand as the new Adam and Eve, the True Parents of humankind, and the principles by which the Messiah is to fulfill this. This leads to a structured set of tangible and measurable objectives, beginning with themselves as individuals and as a couple, their family, their clan, their religious community and other affiliated organizations, their nation, the world and the spirit world. According to this hermeneutic, we will analyze the historical record of Rev. and Mrs. Moon’s lives, creating hypotheses as to the rationale by which they determined their goals and objectives and responded to setbacks. 3 credits
SCR 5151 World Scriptures and World Peace
In this course we study the holy scriptures of the world religions, looking especially at their meeting-points for peace and interfaith harmony. We begin with the Bible, which is sacred to Judaism and Christianity. Next we turn our attention to the Qur’an, the sacred scripture of Islam, before concluding by tasting the scriptures of Buddhism, Hinduism and Confucianism. Through studying key scriptural texts, we can explore various points of conflict and convergence between religions. There are both hard texts that cause friction and golden texts that have become meeting-points for peace. All throughout we will examine the various ways that believers look at these texts, a topic called hermeneutics, because when it comes to scripture, the interpretation of a text is often more important than the text itself.
Two different perspectives are intertwined in this course: First, we can look at a scripture as it is understood the faith community that holds it sacred; for this we need to understand what each religion teaches, its own reference point, and how its scripture supports its beliefs. We will also learn about exegesis, which is the art of drawing out the meaning of a text to illustrate a life lesson or a tenet of faith.
Second, we can look at the interconnectedness between the scriptures of different faiths; and for this we have a great resource, World Scripture and the Teachings of Sun Myung Moon (or World Scripture: A Comparative Anthology of Sacred Texts). We will consult this work throughout the course. 3 credits
