This course explores the interplay between religion and sport. These two endeavours represent the ultimate concern for a number of people around the world. We will analyze their similarities and differences in relation to how sport and religion serve as a total identity for some people. We will also map some of the influence and expression of religious traditions in sport. Case studies will include reviewing arguments for considering the Montreal Canadiens and the Saskatchewan Roughriders as religions in their own right.
Prerequisite(s): 3 credit units RLST or 18 credit units at the university level.
