A 1999 course by Michael Bathgate at DePaul University provides “an overview of Japanese religious history, from the earliest historical records to the present. It will take into account not only the social, political and cultural contexts within which these various religious traditions have come into contact, but also the ways in which they have interacted with one another (sometimes in mutual support, sometimes in competition) to produce the characteristic religious landscape of Japan.”
