Program Description:
CCS300 Kings, Knights, and Bishops:  Interreligious Dialog and Politics in the United Kingdom

top kni

CCS300 Kings, Knights, and Bishops has historic and contemporary components.  

First, this course will investigate how religious worldviews and beliefs of the Anglicans, Presbyterians, and some independent Disserters, who are commonly know as "Puritans" today, impacted the struggle between the crown and parliament during the era of the British civil wars and Glorious Revolution of the 17th century.  The purpose of this exercise is to come to a clearer understanding about how differences in religious traditions, or cultures, led to the British civil wars and prolonged the settlement reached in the Glorious Revolution of 1688.  This will serve as background for the next component of this course by demonstrating how improperly conducted interreligious, or cross-cultural dialog can lead to social discontent.  We will complete this exercise both through classroom study of medieval and Stuart Britain, the religious beliefs of cultures mentioned above, and experiencing several historical sites in England, where the social impacts of this cultural interaction are made clear.  

Secondly, this course will then investigate how four modern-day British religious traditions - the Anglicans, the Presbyterians, the Baptists [as modern representatives of the independent Dissenting tradition], and the Muslims - conduct interreligious dialog today and how differences in world view and doctrine could impact the future development of British governmental institutions and social polic.  A benefit of this portion of this study is the opportunity to dialogue with people of differing faiths, or cultures, and learn how to interact with them in a multi-cultural world, so as to foster peace and understanding.
