Faith and Reason in Christian History (Spring 2013)

Click here for the course schedule.

Modern thought often contrasts reason and faith, knowledge and belief, science and religion, but people in the ancient and medieval west had no problem integrating their rational, practical, and spiritual lives. This series will explore the relationship between faith, doubt, and rational inquiry in the Christian west. Participants will examine how premodern people reconciled reason and faith, learn how and why modern thinkers ultimately separated them, and discuss the changing relationship between reason and faith in the 21st century.
