This introductory course explores Christianity’s formation and transformation from the post-apostolic era to the "Triumph of Orthodoxy" in the East and the Carolingian revival and Treaty of Verdun in the West in the year 843. Along the way, we will explore how Christians described their religious experience, practiced their faith, articulated and argued about their beliefs, and structured their ecclesial communities. We will learn about Christianity’s changing relationship to political power; its engagement with other religions and cultures; the lifestyles, theological mindsets, and models of community proposed and debated by Christian leaders; the political and theological challenges associated with the movement’s early marginalization, eventual expansion, encounter with Islam in the East and the "barbarians" in the West; and the formation of "Christian Europe."  Lecture, group discussions. Evaluation: practice quizzes, mid-term writing projects, choice of final exam or research paper.

This introductory course examines the history of Christianity from the Peace of Westphalia (1648) to the end of the twentieth century.

The Radical Reformation

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will describe and analyze the settings, ideas, and personalities that shaped first generation Anabaptism (1525 – 1561) within the context of late medieval and sixteenth century church and society. This includes comparisons and contrasts with Spiritualism, another stream of the Radical Reformation. The secondary thrust of this course is to study the transition of Anabaptism from a many sided revolutionary movement shaped by martyrdom into three sectarian denominations (Hutterites, Swiss Brethren, Mennonites and their sub-sets) seeking a settled existence (1561 – 1660).   There is an increasing diversity of views concerning the theological and geographical range of Anabaptism. This course focuses largely on leaders and teachings that became the foundation of Anabaptism’s three descendent denominations, Hutterites, Amish, and Mennonites; it confines itself to developments in Dutch and German speaking territories.

Nietzsche, Foucault and the Genealogical Approach to the History of Philosophy

Offered in Fall 2012  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This seminar examines that philosophical approach to the history of philosophy that travels under the name of genealogy. It does so in terms of close readings of selected texts of the tradition's two major figures: Friederich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault against the backdrop of a number of ancient and medieval examples of protreptic rhetoric. It thereby attests the thesis that contemporary genealogy is the latest manifestation of the protreptic tradition in the history of philosophy, i.e., a deliberative rhetoric designed to exhort recipients to turn ( convertere )from harm to health, from falsehood to truth, from the base to the noble. The course will run as a seminar in which students will be asked to produce weekly papers of 400 to 600 words on the weekly readings to prime class room discussion. In addition, each student will be required to prepare a seminar on one required text which involves written material of between 1200 and 1800 words. Finally, each student will be required to submit a course paper on a topic mutually agreed upon with the class instructor. The course paper should be 4500 to 7500 words in the case of a Master's level student and 6000 to 9000 words in the case of a ThD/ PhD level student. The grade will be the result of weekly papers (25%), seminar presentation (15%) and course paper (60%).

Rhetoric as Philosophy from Isocrates to the Age of Abelard and Heloise

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This seminar examines the ancient and medieval discipline of rhetoric and its practitioners' claim that it represents a properly philosophical discourse. It does so in terms of a selection of texts drawn from the works of Isocrates, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Augustine, Abelard and Heloise. In the process, it explores the relationship between affectivity and discursive validity with a view to the effect such a focus has on our understanding of Greek and Latin philosophy, patristic and medieval theology and their intertwined history. The course will run as a seminar in which instructor and students together attend closely to weekly required readings. Students will be required to write weekly papers (400- 600 words) on the weekly readings. In addition, each student will be required to make one formal seminar presentation on a weekly reading that will include written material of between 1200- 1800 words. Finally each student will be required to write a course paper on a topic agreed upon by student and instructor. MA/ ThM level students will be required to write a paper of between 4500 and 7500 words. PhD/ ThD students will be required to write a paper of between 6000 and 9000 words. Each of the three forms of writing mentioned above will be subject to evaluation and the final grade of the course will be calculated as follows: weekly papers (25%), seminar presentation (15%), course essay (60%).

Mediaeval Liturgical Commentaries

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2012 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Most people, when the subject of mediaeval liturgy is mentioned, think of the old service books which have the words spoken (sacramentaries, lectionaries, missals, breviaries) and descriptions of the action (ordos). There is another class of book entirely, the liturgical commentaries, which goes through the public services, explaining the elements they contain. They were also interested in the ministers of the liturgy, their orders and dress, in the structure of church and altar, in the calendar (temporal and sanctoral), and of course in the vexed question of how a priest computed the date of Easter (no diocesan journals in those days). Teaching methods: shared reading of 5 commentaries with explanations by the instructor.
