Law and Theology

This seminar explores the ways in which the problems considered, analytical techniques used, and conceptual models developed by theologians can provide useful insights to students of the law. Specific subjects addressed may vary depending upon the backgrounds and interests of class participants, contemporary legal developments, and the availability of guest speakers, but are likely to include: identifying and defining sources of authority; the interpretation of complex texts composed by multiple authors; the significance of ritual; the tension between justice and mercy; the importance of storytelling; and the role of mystery. Active class participation and preparation of a research paper will be required.
