Religious Studies is the academic study of religion and spirituality. We explore texts, histories, and ways in which humans from various cultures have understood their world. We study the beliefs, ethics, rituals, artifacts, and organizations of religions, and we consider the changing relationship between religion and elements of the wider culture--including politics, art, economics, literature, and society.
