Increasingly persons are taking up practices from more than one religious tradition. Some go so far as to claim “double belonging.” This course explores multiple religious participation/double belonging and its implications for theology. After exploring a wide range of such phenomena, we ask the following questions: Can one belong to two (or more) different religious traditions and practices at the same time? Is religious “double-dipping” possible? Is it worthwhile? Is it necessary?
