THEO 046 - Religion in America
This course will examine religious motifs in American history and contemporary society, with an emphasis on: the faiths of the founders, conceptions of America as "the kingdom of God," biblical themes, theocracies, "social gospel," and religious freedom and its constitutional constraints. While "mainline" Protestantism has provided the theological foundation for much of American religious life, our examination of Native American religions, indigenous sectarian movements, the Branch Davidian movement at Waco, and contemporary women's spirituality movements, will deepen our understanding of the vibrancy of Religion in America.
