This is an undergraduate introduction to the three faith traditions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  The course is team taught, usually between faculty members from the McGill School of Religious Studies, the Department of Jewish Studies, and the McGill Institute of Islamic Studies.  Traditions are presented in successive order (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), with 6–7 lectures devoted to each, followed by a series of comparative lectures.  The goal of this course is to highlight these traditions both in their own right and within a broader comparative perspective.
