History of Christianity III (1648-present)

Offered in Summer 2013  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2012 · Online Course

This introductory course examines the history of Christianity from the Peace of Westphalia (1648) to the end of the twentieth century. As will be demonstrated throughout the course, the major catalyst for change has been, and continues to be, the constant tension between the inherently static nature of the historic Church and the forces of modernity. Throughout the course we will see how modern culture, which includes but is not limited to, contemporary politics, philosophy, literature, and painting, exercised an overwhelming influence on the development of eighteenth-century, nineteenth-century, and twentieth-century Christianity. Two short research summaries submitted online (40%), participation (20%), final exam submitted online (40%)

The Last Enemy: Death and the Christian Hope

Offered in Summer 2013  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This intensive course will examine the puzzling phenomenon of death from a variety of perspectives, including theological, biological, philosophical, and political. We will explore the thesis that while all people die there is no single thing called “death,” but that death’s meaning is always governed by some larger narrative of divine and/or human realities. Particular attention will be paid to Christianity’s situating of death in an apocalyptic context, the death and resurrection of Jesus as the undoing of death, and the particular ways in which death is denied or eclipsed in modern liberal capitalism. We will also draw on literary sources, from the ancient Greeks to contemporary novels, to lend depth and texture to our study of “the last enemy.”  Lectures, seminar discussion, small groups. Class participation, précis, final paper.

The Radical Reformation

Offered in Summer 2013  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will describe and analyze the settings, ideas, and personalities that shaped first generation Anabaptism (1525 – 1561) within the context of late medieval and sixteenth century church and society. This includes comparisons and contrasts with Spiritualism, another stream of the Radical Reformation. The secondary thrust of this course is to study the transition of Anabaptism from a many sided revolutionary movement shaped by martyrdom into three sectarian denominations (Hutterites, Swiss Brethren, Mennonites and their sub-sets) seeking a settled existence (1561 – 1660).   There is an increasing diversity of views concerning the theological and geographical range of Anabaptism. This course focuses largely on leaders and teachings that became the foundation of Anabaptism’s three descendent denominations, Hutterites, Amish, and Mennonites; it confines itself to developments in Dutch and German speaking territories.
