Religion and Politics: From Pax Christiana to Pax Americana

The course gives students an opportunity to explore the complex relationship between political ideologies and religious teachings and practices from the Renaissance until the present day. The focus in this course is on the development of imperial ideas over the course of modernity, in connection to religious Christian narratives. The concept of universal peace and the idea of a universal global capital, which safeguards the true belief, informed modern empires in a very profound way, their ideologies and concrete policies. The latest expression of this universalist tendency one finds in the concept of pax Americana, which has been used to characterize the global order (peace) which came as a result of the dominance of one super-power in the late twentieth/early twenty-first century.At the end of the course, the student is expected to be able to: - Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the relationship between religious and political ideas from the time of the Protestant Reformation until the present; - Discuss major religious and political/philosophical ideas concerning the Church and State and their mutual interactions (in the relevant period); - Analyze and critically assess imperial ideas and aspirations in the history of the West (in the relevant period), and their connection with the ideas of peace, justice and power
