Choose two to write and make sure to included the questions you choose. Each question should have around 300 words, one page each. I\’ll attach the lectures so please read over those for the questions thank youSection 2: Essays
Listed below are six essay questions. The final exam will consist of four of them, from which you will choose two to write. Each essay will be four-eight paragraphs long, and each is worth 34 points (68 combined for the section). You should have a thesis paragraph, and a concluding paragraph as well (yes, form counts). This is a closed-book exam. No extra credit essays. These questions are exactly as they will appear on the exam, except for #1 & #4, which, if chosen, will come with additional texts and a question built around those texts.1. You will be asked to compare and contrast two narratives of hierophanic religious experience which we have examined and/or discussed in class, from the following group: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Jarena Lee, Joseph Smith and Nat Turner. The narratives and a precise question built around them will be supplied with the exam, and you will be expected to base your answer on close reading. To best prepare, review the excerpts from these authors from the powerpoints, and study the features of mysticism.2. Construct a conversation on the distinctions between universal and local religions, and the dynamics of proselytizing, using four or more of the following participants: Red Jacket (Sa-go-ye-wat-ha), Charles Taze Russell, Jonathan Edwards, Roger Williams, Motechuzoma, Ioann Veniaminov, Jarena Lee, Mary Baker Eddy, and Malcolm X. They will likely be concerned with issues such as the nature of religious truth, and the virtues and weaknesses of religious tolerance. Other issues are admissible, if you articulate your logic carefully. Be creative but stay on topic – don’t turn it into a Jerry Springer brawl! This can be either an essay or a dramatic scene.3. Can a religion be ‘authentically’ American? What does that even mean? From the list below, choose three or four founders of religion, who will each make an argument (in either essay or dialogue form) for why their religion is the most ‘authentically’ American. Consider how each founder and faith thinks about cosmology, history, and American’s destiny. Choose from among Elijah Muhammad, Richard Allen, Swami Vivekananda, Joseph Smith, Ellen G. White, John Winthrop, Roger Williams, Juan Diego, Thomas Paine, John Humphrey Noyes, and Huitzilipochtli (an Aztec deity).4. For this question, you will be presented with excerpts from important American expressions of each of the major religious cosmological frameworks: Karmic Religions, Indigenous Polytheisms, and Transcendent Monotheisms. You will be asked to describe these three cosmologies, using the readings provided, and to explain why they are unlikely to reach agreement.5. From your exercise of reading a textbook and comparing it to what happens in class lecture, reflect on the narratives of American religious history. Clearly indicating the name of the author(s) of the book you used, compare the coverage in your book and in the class of five of the figures from the list below. Some of these people were not mentioned in class; others will not have been mentioned in your book. Speculate on what kind of stories are being told by your author and by your professor, by the relative weight they accord each of these characters. The best way to study for this is to research the presence of these figures in your book by using the index, choosing your figures in advance, and having a theory ready!
a. a. Hernan Cortes
b. Richard Allen
c. Mary Dyer
d. Anthony Benezet
e. Horace Bushnell
f. Alexander Campbell
g. Abdullah Igram
h. Bishop John Carroll
i. Ellen G. White
j. Swami Vivekananda6. In this class, we’ve seen numerous prominent women figures in American religion. Choose at least three women from this list: Sky-Woman (Iroquois creation myth), White Buffalo Calf Woman (Great Plains), La Virgen de Guadalupe, Anne Hutchinson, Mother Ann Lee, Jarena Lee, Mary Baker Eddy, Henrietta Szold. What do the lives, stories, and philosophies of these women tell us about the possible range of influence that religion can have on gender relations? What, if any, obstacles based on gender did these women (or mythical figures) have to overcome? Consider, in particular, perspectives on authority and hierarchy, and how gender impacts cosmological questions. This can be constructed as either an essay or as a dialogue among the women.
