C5141 Introduction to Pagan Theology
Instructor: Christine Hoff-Kraemer, Ph.D.
Course Dates: September 9 – December 15, 2019
Class Meetings: Mondays, 9:00 PM ET
Course Description: Theology – the study of Deity – calls us to make connections between reason and experience, history and contemporary life, and between our own traditions and practices and those of others. It is something we do – a practice by which we grow in deeper understanding of our relationships with the divine and others, not a matter of mere theory. In this class, we will explore and refine our personal theologies through encounters with significant voices in Paganism, the Western occult tradition, and earth-centered and feminist Christianity/post-Christianity, as well as develop expertise with theological terminology. Students will develop skills to engage in informed and intelligent theological discussions with clergy from other religious traditions.
Prerequisite: C5101 Ethics and Boundaries OR C5121 Contemporary Global Paganisms OR permission of the instructor.
