CBIB 4U2 - African Traditional Religions, Christianity and Islam in Contemporary Uganda


Credit Hours: 3
Religion dominates the social, political and economic lives of Africans. Three religions have had a strong influence in Uganda; ATR, Christianity and Islam. This course, will survey religions in Uganda, emphasizing ATR and Islam. The study of ATR will be phenomenological in its view, looking at the scheme of ideas that help us appreciate the nature of African religions. The study of Islam will emphasize a basic understanding and appreciation of the life of Prophet Muhammad, its formative influence on Islam as a religion, and its attendant cultural influence in Uganda. In this course, we will also examine the influence of Christianity in Uganda. A very important aspect of our study will be the historical interaction between the three religions-ATR, Islam and Christianity.
