REL 32.09 Heresy and Authority

What makes “right belief” right?  Who decides what is “orthodox” and what is “heterodox”?  Who controls the label “heresy”?  This course explores ideas of heresy and authority within the history of western Christianity by focusing primarily on the eleventh through the fifteenth century.  Considering various struggles for secular and spiritual authority, we will also question the authority given (and taken) by the authors of history (both primary and secondary). Open to all.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
