Description: 

This seminar course explores the role of bodies and embodiment by analyzing particular contexts in Christian history and contemporary life. It raises and seeks to answer questions about death, suffering, and the afterlife, about the relationship between body, mind and soul, about sex, race, gender and dis/ability, about the body as a locus for knowledge, and about religious identity and agency. Putting historical readings from the early church, Medieval Christianity, and Modernity in dialogue with contemporary theological texts, students develop historical understanding of contemporary issues related to embodiment and Christian practice.
