69910 - Comparative analysis of religious right-based

Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2017/2018

Learning outcomes

The course has two main objectives. The first one is that to introduce the students to the knowledge and experience of the juridical worlds based on divine law. In particular, the attention will be focused on the legal structure of the three monotheistic religions: Canon law, Hebrew law and Muslim law. The second objective one, is that to measure, precisely through the right, the progressive secularization (promoted by the advent of the technical age) of these three great religious families. In this way you can highlight the enormous distance that now separates the religious-based rights and the secular legal systems.
