Each question SHOULD be answered in a three paragraph essay. I
recommend that you write your essays in a word processing program
off-line and then copy and paste them into the exam answer window.
1.How would you personally define the term religion? Why? Would you include phenomena like magic, witchcraft, and aliens in your definition?Why or why not? (Be specific and detailed in your explanations and address the ways to define religion that were discussed in Chapter 1.)
2. There are many ways in which religious systems reflect the societies in which they are found. Why is this the case? Discuss this in reference to at least two specific examples (e.g., gods, witchcraft, sorcery, rituals, worldview) and include illustrative cultural examples of each.
