Welcome to Professor Cutsinger’s on-line edition of “Comparative Religion”, a course he taught for many years at the University of South Carolina. This edition includes six units or modules, as noted below. Each of these units contains chapters from Paths of Return, Cutsinger’s written lectures for the course; selections from A Book of Saints, a compilation of supplementary readings; and YouTube presentations (slides with audio narrative) prepared by Professor Cutsinger to explain in more illustrative detail important points made in his written lectures. These materials are best understood if read and viewed in the order indicated inside each module.
