Magical Course Credit at University

I just registered for another class in religious and magical studies at my University. Jealous? Last semester, I took Magic, Science & Religion—a course on the complexity of human relationships and communication with the Divine, and religious/political movements in culture—and will soon be taking Jewish Mysticism, Magic & Lore. Squee!

My professor informed me that my total lack of experience with, and rudimentary knowledge of, Judaism would actually be an asset rather than a disadvantage. She claimed that most students who come from a Jewish tradition are usually quite challenged in their understanding of their ancient roots, and have to endure a re-education and often a personal transformation. It can be really difficult for them to process, she said.

I am so looking forward to this class! I was raised a protestant Christian, in a faith and household that embraced Christianity’s ancestral religion of Judaism. It always seemed natural to me that Christian were decedents of the Jews, in religious belief and tradition. I can’t wait to learn more about the history and form of the Hebrew language (an animistic syllabary), and the evolution of Judaism from polytheism to monotheism. SO EXCITED!

In addition to this class I’m also taking others that have nothing to do with religion or magic…so they don’t count and aren’t worth mentioning. Tee hee.

Love & Education,

I’m a pan(en)theistic Pagan with a quick tongue, black thumb, and no sense of elemental direction. Otherwise, I’m awesome.

    I took a few magic/religion classes in college. All of which I enjoyed. I just wish the college I go too offered more.

    Aside from college.
    I'm currently considering trying a class again with the pagan online campus. I started a class on Gemstones on there but failed to finish it due to life becoming quite hectic. Hoping life has calmed down – and I hope I can actually complete a class on there this year.

    Found your blog through Inciting a Riot. Looking forward to reading more.

    @Faelyn Merry meet! That sounds like a great class! I took some similar online pagan classes at the Firefly Academy until my life got too hectic as well. I hope one day to go back and continue. I LOVE Inciting A Riot. Fire Lyte's awesome. Thanks for reading!

    Yes, I am incredibly jealous! I'd love to hear more about your class. I'm married to a Jewish (atheist) woman and am trying to learn Hebrew, as that's what her family speaks. When I'm in her home country, I feel connected to the ancient gods of her people – Astarte and others. At some point I'm going to try and get to know them! Maybe when I speak more Hebrew :)
