Rels 2001 Midterm Fall 2011 Instructions: On the day of the midterm, two of the following questions will be randomly selected. Each student will respond to any one of the two selected questions. Each response will be worth 50 points. Responses should be detailed, accurate, and well-written, including direct references to the readings. No study aids of any kind will be permitted. 1. Contrast any two of the following four creation stories: Enuma Elish, Hymn to Aton, and the 2 creation stories in Genesis with respect to the historical context and basic narrative of each story. How would Mircea Eliade analyze these stories? How would Rosemary Radford Ruether analyze them. Be thorough and specific. 2. Use specific examples to explain how both the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary present challenges to the canonical gospels as discussed in class. Be sure to mention historical context and use your analysis as a way to discuss the major issues Elaine Pagels explores in “What Ever Happened to God the Mother?” 3. Analyze the Shinto and Hindu creation stories from Mircea Eliade and Rosemary Radford Ruether’s points of view.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
