TH 527 - Special Topics: Beyond Secular Faith - Politics as Theology


Only a faith liberated from the conceptual restraints and ideological presuppositions imposed by secular culture - a faith centered radically on Christ - can offer a word of hope and reason to human life. This course will explore the question of the political, and specifically the ways in which every theology is political and every politics, theological. The question thus becomes, for Christian life, what is the adequate theological form of political narratives? Or better, what form of political practice and belonging does theology entail? The first part of this course takes place in Granada, Spain at the 5th Annual International Summer School and Conference 2017.  Students must register for this conference.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL AND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE:

The title of our fifth annual Summer School and International Conference, Beyond Secular Faith, stems from our conviction that only a faith liberated from the conceptual restraints and ideological presuppositions imposed by secular culture - a faith centered radically on Christ - can offer a word of hope and reason to human life. This year our summer school will be dedicated to explore the question of the political, and specifically the ways in which every theology is political and every politics, theological. The question thus becomes, for Christian life, what is the adequate theological form of political narratives? Or better, what form of political practice and belonging does theology entail.

For four years our summer school has facilitated a rich and friendly theological, philosophical and cultural dialogue in freedom, in the unique setting of Granada, a breathtakingly beautiful city that lies at the historic crossroads of modernity and the Christian tradition.
