Modern Theologies: Re-Conceiving God After the Enlightenment

Jill Carroll

Traditional conceptions of religion and the divine are among the long-held beliefs that the so-called “Age of Enlightenment” in the West called into question. The rise of modern science, the questioning of how we know what we claim to know, and the push toward individual freedom and democracy together formed the conditions for not only significant critiques of traditional western religion, but also the development of new approaches to understanding and conceiving the divine, “God” or whatever one wanted to call it. In this course, we will explore some of the major developments in Western theology of the last few hundred years, including a review of some of the most powerful critiques of religion ever levied. As we will see, theology and religion are dynamic cultural products that evolve alongside their human creators as we ourselves change from age to age.


This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
