Short content

This course is designed to provide broad yet analytically focused perspective on historical and contemporary topics related to political and mystical aspects of Christianity and Islam. The course is rooted in social studies and humanities, offering conceptual and theoretical foundations for the analysis of relations between religion, identity, and society. The first half of the course addresses broader issues of relations between mystical and political in Abrahamic monotheism (from the historical and contemporary perspective). The course will, then, present how the tension between mystical and political reflects upon relations between politics and religion (including the problems of radicalization and re-traditionalization), upon contemporary political conflicts, migrant crises and international security.
