Sterling M. McMurrin Lectures on Religion and Culture

Volume 1

Sterling M. McMurrin

Tanner Lectures

Studying religion in its many aspects is profoundly important to understanding our cultural diversity, our history, and our values. If religion is at the heart of every culture, it is imperative that we seek to know more about its influence in our lives and its place in our world. These six inaugural lectures, delivered by Sterling McMurrin from 1992 to 1994, introduce and discuss religion in various aspects. Subsequent volumes featuring the work of invited lecturers will continue to present the very best scholarship on religion.

Published by the Humanities Center at the University of Utah and distributed by the University of Utah Press.


Sterling M. McMurrin was the first person to be designated a Distinguished Professor at the University of Utah and he was the first recipient of the university's Rosenblatt Prize. His many publications include Religion, Reason, and Truth: Historical Essays in the Philosophy of Religion.
