REL 551. Shari'a, Democracy, and Society. 3 Hours H.

In this class we examine the question of whether or not democracy and shari'a can coexist. Is there a necessary opposition between democratic visions of society and the institutionalization of Islamic law? As a case study we look at changes in the modern Egyptian political system and the role religious ideals have played in these changes, especially the push for democracy. Prerequisite: An introductory course in religious studies or consent of instructor. LEC.
