This is a story about a wall the separations it's meant to enforce, and the unintended ones it gives birth to. The security wall being constructed by Israel on the West Bank has divided Palestinian families and communities. It has also isolated the Catholic-run Our Lady of Sorrows nursing home outside of Jerusalem, leaving its feisty residents to face old age in the throes of one of the world's most bitter conflicts. With beautiful imagery, moments of laughter and use of a quietly eccentric older guide, This Way Up examines the social, economic and religious barriers that arise from physical ones.

What are the world religions? Brainstorm 8 World religions Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, Shintoism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sikhism Create a graphic organizer with 8 rows & 4 columns

What factors have allowed certain religions to become widespread and sustainable? Ways to categorize Polytheistic or monotheistic? Exclusive or non-exclusive?

Occidental or oriental? Ethnic or universal? Polytheistic vs. montheistic Refers to how many Gods the religion adheres to

Example: the ancient Greek and Roman religions believed in many Gods (polytheistic) Buddhism believes in many Gods (polytheistic) Christian, Jews and Islam religions believe in one God (monotheistic)

Do you need to believe in a God or many Gods to be considered a religion? Polytheistic vs. montheistic Refers to how many Gods the religion adheres to Example: the ancient Greek and Roman religions believed in many Gods (polytheistic)

Buddhism believes in many Gods (polytheistic) Christian, Jews and Islam religions believe in one God (monotheistic) Do you need to believe in a God or many Gods to be considered a religion? Exclusive vs. nonexclusive

Are you allowed to believe in more than one religion or set of beliefs? How false does one religion regard the others? People following non-exclusive traditions may follow several religions with overlapping beliefs

What do you think the connection between conflict and exclusivity may be? Occidental vs. Oriental Refers to birthplace of religion Connection to geography of religion today Occidental: Western world (pre-exploration)

Oriental: Eastern world Ethnic vs. Universality Ethnic religions are closely tied to a group of people, place (nationality or state), and heritage Religion and ethnicity can become inseparable

Ex. Judaism chosen people and Hinduism and the caste system Ethnic vs. Universalized A universalizing religion is dependent on how open the religion is to accepting outsiders. Universalizing religions have four characteristics:

adherents believe what they think is proper for all human kind have a means of transmission are not inextricably linked to a nation, ethnicity, or place are dominant somewhere

Ex. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism Categorize religions Exclusive, Monotheistic & Occidental: Christianity Judaism Islam

Categorizing Religion Non-exclusive, polytheistic & Oriental: Confucianism Taoism Taoism

Hinduism Buddhism Importance of physical features Importance of physical features Importance of physical features

Importance of physical features Sacred Structures Religion, Society & Government The idea of a truly secular state is a recent idea Theocracy: religious organization provides the body of government (Israel, Middle Eastern governments) State Religions: provide rituals / validation. The State provides the religion official recognition and protection (Middle Ages) Separation of State and Religion: a trait of modern day democracies (Canada, USA, Australia, England)

Transmission of religions Migration: population growth, trade, transmission of cultures Conversion: marriage, missionary work Competition: Exclusivity? Co-existence? Christianity Roman Empire, Charlemagne period Islam/Judaism/Christianity and Crusades Asian approach to religious co-existence
