Introduction to Pagan Theology (non-master’s section)

Christine Hoff Kraemer, Ph.D.

Christine Hoff Kraemer, Ph.D.

Theology—the study of Deity—calls us to make connections between reason and experience, history and contemporary life, our own traditions and practices and those of others. It is something we *do*—a practice by which we grow in deep understanding of our relationships with the divine and others, not a matter of mere theory. Students will explore and refine personal theologies through encounters with significant voices in Paganism, the Western occult tradition, earth-centered and feminist Christianity/post-Christianity, as well as develop expertise with theological terminology. Some chats may be led by guest lecturers or students. If 3 or fewer students are enrolled, the class will be offered as a directed study with no live chats.
