Course Content This module first presents key systematic themes in theology: the truth claim of monotheism and its alleged link to violence, understandings of humans being made in the image of God, of Adam’s sin and of salvation in the history of Christian thinking, theodicy and eschatology. Secondly it will introduce key modern contextual theologies: political, liberation and feminist theologies. Its third part will discuss the question of theology at the university since 1800.
