The purpose of this course is to teach how basic principles from economics yield a greater understanding of religious behavior. We will learn economic concepts step-by-step, use them to develop theories and predictions about various aspects of religion, and then review evidence in support of these theories. Simple ideas and clear examples will bring to light very interesting aspects of religious phenomena.
