Students will examine Western European representations of evil in selected Biblical, theological, sociological and literary. They will use three frames-of-reference or world views of theology, existentialism and post-structuralism. The class will explore how the concept of evil becomes a means of making sense of human suffering. Evil is a broad and complex concept that exists within moral frames-of-reference that dominate various historical periods.

Professor Kenneth Johnson will teach this fully online course.
