PS 471 - Seminar: The Politics of Spiritual Disorder

(3.00 cr.)

A theoretical and historical examination of the convergence of spiritual disorientation and political disorder. Readings focus on the doctrines and political activities of apocalyptic cults in the ancient world, millenarian sects in the Middle Ages, and the revolutionary communist and fascist parties in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Students explore the extent to which patterns of continuity can be found among these groups, and offer presentations to the seminar based upon extensive research papers. Written or electronic permission of the instructor.
