ENG 285 Religion, Literature, and Popular Culture

This course examines this engagement of popular literature, film, and television and religion – specifically the Western Christian tradition. In recent years, a number of novels, films, and television shows have engaged overtly with religion and religious themes. Literature and film have often employed religious themes and imagery; however, attempts to define an overtly “Christian culture” – books, music, and films – have not ended the interest of the so-called secular culture in matters of faith and religion.
