This course examines the intersection of war and religion in early America. Beginning with the first European settlements in North America and continuing through the Early Republic (1790s), this course asks students to explore how the religious identities of early Americans influenced their concepts of war and violence. Students will be challenged to rethink the ways in which religious imperatives created and shaped violent conflict, and to investigate the varied ways in which religious women and men relied upon moral dogma to interpret war and violence. Finally, this course will also require students to reflect on how the early American experience informs our understanding of the relationship between war, violence, and religion in 21st-century America.
