Religion of Trees
Eugene Lang College Lib Arts: Liberal Arts
Trees have long played a central part in religious and spiritual traditions, from Yggdrasil to the Bodhi tree, from Ethiopian Church Forests to the “dark green” religions of the Anthropocene. Today scientific research is revealing ever more forms and networks of sentience and relationship among trees themselves, and between them and their symbiont species—including humans. This class seeks inspiration in religious studies and the new research on trees to explore what they might teach us.
