This course seeks to explore what Paul and Buddha might learn from each other. After a general introduction to their context and teachings, we will first investigate the place of "the other" in Paul's theology and community practice and how this compares to the contemporary discussion of "theologies of religions." The second part of the course will bring Paul and Buddha into conversation on such issues as: No-self/New-Self, the Bodhi-Tree and the Cross, Sanga/Ecclesia, Meditation/Spirit, Present Moment/Eschatology, Agape/Compassion, Dharma/Nomos.
