Course Introduction

The course engages with some of the political, ethical, sociological and policy questions raised by the historical and cultural shifts that have formed our complex world; but its special focus is the religious dimension; how do traditions respond to secular modernity and religious pluralism; how can we understand what 'religion' means in our kind of society; and how are Christians to make theological sense of the presence, power and persistence of the many faith traditions; the programme begins by asking how we can understand 'religion and religions' in the age of modernity.
