2. Explain some of the key concepts in Buddhism such as: dharma, dukkha, Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path, anicca, kamma, nirvana, sunyata, bodhisattvas, and the sangha. (You don’t have to write about every single one them).

3. Write about the importance of monasticism or meditation in Buddhist tradition.

4. How is ancient Chinese polytheism like Shinto? In what ways are they different? In what ways are Shinto unlike any other world religions? You might address things like ancestor worship, kami, divination, shrines, ritual, miko, Kojiki, I Ching, zoomorphism, roles of kings & emperors, shamans & priests.

5. Explore on your own some of the Chinese scriptures such as: the Analects, Tao te Ching, Mencius, I Ching, Confucius’ Ethics and Politics, the works of Chuang Tzu. Share your thoughts on the particular readings you have chosen. (You will have to look outside your text for much of this information.)

6. Trace the evolution of the revival of Shinto in the modern period (19th and 20th centuries).

7. How is Judaism transformed in the Medieval period and how have those changes effected the evolving shape of Judaism into the modern period?

8. Write an essay about Judaism in America.

9. What are some of the most important factors concerning the ancient origin and history of Zoroastrianism?

10. Address the issue of the great variety of Christian scriptures that do not make it into the Bible we use today. Who were the Gnostics? Why is our understanding of this group important to the larger understanding of the development of Christianity? What were some of the scriptures that did not survive the test of time (you may need to do a bit of outside research on this), why were they not included in the canon, and what type of pictures did they paint of Jesus? (one of the Part II segments: 7, 8, 10 of the online version or one of the Part IVsegments: Paganism and Ancient Rome, Discovery at Nag Hamadi, Bishop Irenaeus and the Canonical Gospels in the video version.)

11. Write about the shape, direction and diversity of Christianity in the first three centuries. How does it migrate away from Judaism, yet preserve much of its tradition and theology? How do the Persecutions impact the development of Christianity? How big were the early communities, where were they located, and how did they practice their faith? What does the Roman Empire do to eventually change the direction of Christianity? (one of the Part II segments 8,9,10,11,12 of the online version or one from Part II of the video version: The First Followers and Building the Church also Part IV Pliny the Younger, Crime to be a Christian, Defining Christianity, Rule of the Emperor Decius, The Cross.)

12. What can we know factually about the historical Jesus? What are the limitations placed upon our knowledge? How can historical and critical study aid us in a more complete understanding of the Jesus tradition? Do you think it is possible that Christ was not a real person? If there are things about his life that are not historically true is the Jesus narrative that has been handed down to us enough? (Look at one of the Part I, segments: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 of the online version or one from Part I: Who was Jesus, Jesus’ Social Class, Jesus and Judaism, Jesus the Preacher in the video version.)
