Spring 2023; MW 2:30 – 3:50 PM
Dr. Sigrun Haude
This course will concentrate on pivotal events or turning points in the history of Christianity that have had a profound influence–both positive and negative–on the formation of our civilization.
Based on the analysis of historical experiences, the course will raise questions about the relationship between religion & politics, religion & science, religion & reason, and the concept of multiple religions versus one “true” religion.
This is the first course of a two-semester sequence. This part will take us from the beginnings of Christianity to the eve of the Reformation (around 1500).
