This course traces the evolution and diversity of Christianity in North America from the first contact between Europeans and First Nations to the present day. Reading a broad array of primary and secondary sources, we will pay particular attention to the divergent courses of Christianity in Canada and the United States, especially in regard to relations between church and state, religion’s role in politics, and attitudes toward religious pluralism. One short midterm paper (20%) and one longer final paper (70%). Class participation is required (10%).
