Religion 285: The Modern Christian Church

Challenged in and since the eighteenth century by philosophy, science, and changes in culture, the Christian Church had to respond to increasing pressure to adjust or become obsolete. This course traces the development of Liberal and Conservative schools of thought that led to different solutions to these challenges, explores the influence of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological writings on Christian thought, and focuses primarily on developments in Christianity in American life, culture, and politics.
