HST 348 - Marx and Jesus in Latin America


4 credits
Explores the alternately antagonistic and supportive roles of the two principle ideological forces shaping Latin America: Christianity and Marxism. Critically examines their capacity to inspire selfless moral acts and excuse atrocities. Begins by examining Christian ideas about property and ethics in the colonial period, then turns to the origins of modern, secular, liberal economies in the nineteenth century and the consequent debates among Marxists and Christians over property, the stages of history, the legitimacy of state authority, and the standards of just war. Prerequisite(s): HST 110  , HST 111  .
Graded (A-F) only
