Theology and Political Philosophy


Course will examine the transformation of theology and political philosophy in the period between Aquinas and Dante until Montaigne and Bacon. Understanding the changes in thinking about God, man, and the natural world during this period is essential to understanding modernity. While a knowledge of Christianity is essential in this enterprise, we obviously cannot cover all of the earlier Christian material in even the most rudimentary way in the course of the semester, we will look at some that is essential.
