Beginning with the writings of Saint Paul from the 50s CE, this course invites students to explore the complex changing relationship between the Christian Church and “governing power.” Students will examine the writings of some of the best known Christian authors as they respond to the changing political, economic, social, and religious landscape from the early first century down to the twenty-first.
Please join Professor Joseph W.H. Lough, lecturer in Political Economy at UC Berkeley, as he guides us through this treacherous terrain.
