The Theology of Liberalism

  • Elm Institute Library (map)

In The Hebrew Republic (2011) and The Theology of Liberalism (2019) Eric Nelson argues that “the tradition of liberal political philosophy founded by John Rawls is, however unwittingly, the product of ancient theological debates about justice and evil.” This semester the political theology reading group will consider Nelson’s argument, starting with John Rawls less well-known writings on religion before turning to Nelson’s own work.
