The literature of early Christianity is filled with ambiguity concerning women's role in the churches and in the story of salvation. Women's subordination was justified on the basis of Eve's role in bringing evil and sin into the world. At the same time, women were presented as heroiness and models of the ideal Christian life. They held roles of leadership within early church communities, even while early church writers argued against their right to do so. This course will examine a wide range of primary texts by and about women in the early Christian churches in order to explore the relationship between faith and culture as the context for understanding women's role and status in the early church. It will also look at ways in which these texts might be relevant for the modern context. This course fulfills the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.

This course will (a) explore U.S. criminal justice systems from several theological viewpoints and (b) cultivate a conversation between the resources of theology and criminology in the search for responses to the current issues in these systems. The overlapping themes in criminology and theology of crime and sin, punishment and rehabilitation and redemption, restoration and forgiveness will shape the discussion. Students pursuing vocations in criminal justice will have an opportunity to consider the relationship between their work and Christian theology, while students who are interested in the topic as involved citizens may come to see how they may play a part in addressing this issue.

The history of Christianity is a history of inculturation in diverse geographical and cultural settings. Now the axis of the Christian world is shifting to the global South, in a age of globalization. This course examines the implications of this shift, and the resources that Christian theology and tradition offer for guiding how Christians live out their faith across cultures. It explores how differing cultural perspectives inform Christian teaching, while in turn Christian teaching grounds and guides the process of inculturaion. Specific topics include: the worldwide growth of Pentecostal/Charismatic Christianity, implications for the ecclesiology of the Roman Catholic and other historic churches; and the Christian duty of global solidarity and its potential to reshape national, ethnic and class loyalties.

This course studies both Catholic and Protestant Christianity in Germany from the First World War to the end of the Second World War. The basic theme is Christianity's relationship with its host culture, and the ways in which the churches, both theologians and lay people, understood that relationship, especially in its political dimension, amidst the crises that convulsed Germany in the twenties, thirties, and forties. Attention is given both to cases that demonstrate the conflict between Christianity and culture, and to cases in which the conflict was not acknowledged, whether through defects of character, theological blind spots, or political miscalculations.
