Renewing liberal values in religion and politics

Renewing liberal values in religion and politics

23rd October - 25th October 2020



The rising tide of fundamentalism and populism links ultra-conservative religious and political thought. Can theological and political liberals find common ground not just to counter the conservatives but to seize the initiative and proclaim a new and appealing set of liberal values? This course explores the underlying core values of both theological and poltical liberalism and the extent to which they can be harnessed, applied and put into practice.
