THEO 264 - The Ways of War and Peace in Christianity and Islam

3 hours
It is sometimes said that the way we think about war tests all our thinking. With attention to the past, and mindful of momentous challenges today, this course examines the various and often-conflicting ways in which Christians and Muslims have regarded theologically not only war but also peace. Topics to be explored include sources for theologies of war and peace (the Bible, the Quran, and other key texts), “holy war” Jihad, “just war,” and approaches to nonviolence within the two traditions.

This course will satisfy the theology core area requirement and the multicultural core requirement.
