WRI 261 - Violence and Peace in God’s Name

Three Credits
Spring Semester

An inquiry into how religious texts can be exploited to cultivate war or nurture peace. Through the multiple lenses of literature, history, and theology, the course examines the Catholic philosophical concept of a “just war,” as it has been theorized from Aquinas and Augustine, and its influence on modern theologians and philosophers of war, pacifism, and socio-political justice.

Fulfills the Catholic Intellectual Traditions requirement.
