REL 335W (EV, IT) Race, Class, and Gender in the Life and Letters of Paul (1)
Earliest Christians were baptized with the declaration that in Christ there is “neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” This course explores how this utopian vision and the conflicts it inspired were played out in the earliest Christian communities, especially those reflected in the letters of the Apostle Paul. This is a writing-centered course; students will engage in a number of different writing exercises in it, including a final paper shared with peers.
