ME 145 The Religious Roots of Political Involvement: 3 semester hours

What responsibilities do religious persons or groups have in the political sphere? How are religiously-motivated forms of political involvement different from or similar to their secular counterparts? What are the various motivations, historical precedents and theological or other theoretical paradigms or justifications for different forms of religiously-informed behavior in the political sphere across religious traditions? This course will explore these questions through examining the theoretical and the historical or theological justifications for political involvement across religions. It will also explore these questions through the lives and writings of exemplary religious personalities from different religious affiliations - Martin Luther King, Jr., Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Mahatma Gandhi, Daniel Berrigan, Dorothy Day and others. This class will have a service learning component consistent with the course content.
