Michael Hollerich has been a member of the Theology Department since 1993, having previously taught at Santa Clara University, Luther College, St. Mary's College, and the University of Notre Dame. His academic training is in the history of Christianity (B.A. Notre Dame, in theology; M.T.S. Harvard Divinity School, theology and church history; Ph.D. University of Chicago, History of Christianity). At St. Thomas he has taught many sections of the department's introductory course, as well as specialized courses in all periods of church history; he has also taught graduate level courses in the School of Divinity, the Catholic Studies program, and the Murray Institute. His academic publications are primarily in the early Christian period, with a secondary interest in modern German church history.  Research and teaching interests include religion and politics, especially political theology; the history of biblical interpretation; and relations between eastern and western Christianity. His most recent book is a translation of papers by the German patristics scholar Erik Peterson, Theological Tractates. Several articles on Eusebius of Caesarea are in press or about to be published. He is currently working on a book on the reception history of Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History, to be entitled Making Christian History: Eusebius of Caesarea and His Readers. He is co-editor, with Catherine Cory, of the third edition of the department's textbook, The Christian Theological Tradition, and will co-edit the new, fourth edition with Mark McInroy.

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. Prerequisite: THEO 101 and one 200-level or 300-level THEO course, and PHIL 115
