  • Overview

    Christian expressions of fundamentalist religiosity; defining fundamentalism; methodology in fundamentalist studies; dialogue with the fundamentalist other.

    Despite receiving widespread scholarly attention across a range of disciplines, so?called ?religious fundamentalism? attracts strikingly minimal attention from within Christian theology. This module, therefore, explores religious fundamentalism from an explicitly theological perspective, and with a concern (though not an exclusive concern) for Christian expressions of fundamentalist religiosity. Amongst the challenges for module?participants are: defining fundamentalism; methodology in fundamentalist studies; and dialogue with the fundamentalist other.
