This module introduces students to the theological underpinnings of fundamentalism and the background to its emergence.
This course will focus on the analysis of the broad frame of religious fundamentalism, its history, ramifications and impact on relations between peoples and societies. It will specifically look into the different models of responses that different religious traditions have taken to face up to the challenges of fundamentalism. The historical contexts of fundamentalism will also be examined. The course will review issues relating to fundamentalism and its foundations in different religious traditions. Thus, students will be introduced not only to the theory of religious fundamentalism, but also to case studies of religious fundamentalism.
