Coming Soon: ‘Christianity and Empire by Prof. Joerg Rieger

Coming soon to Religion Compass: ‘Christianity and Empire’ by Prof. Joerg Rieger – PROVISIONAL ABSTRACT:
Despite many connections and tensions between Christian traditions and empire, scholars of religion and theology have rarely reflected on them. What was lost in the process was not only a clearer understanding of how the forces of empire impact Christianity, consciously or unconsciously, but also a sense for how Christianity can never quite be absorbed by empire altogether and which of its resources push beyond empire.
