Question 4: History (10/100)
Write a short essay of at least half a page (150 words) and not longer than one page (300
words) in which you explain how the historical development of any ONE of the religions
dealt with in study units 2-7 (i.e. not Study unit 8, just one of Judaism, Christianity, Islam,
Hinduism or Buddhism) proceeded in terms of the phases in religious development
described in section 1.4 in study unit 1 (from the Early Stone Age to the Postmodern era).
TIP: Most of these religions started out in the Axial Age, while just two can be said to have
started in the Era of the First Cities.
