Event description

Description

Beginning with American Indian notions of sacredness and community, continuing through the foundational speech given by John Winthrop among the Puritans on the deck of the Arbella a day before that ship landed in 1630 in the Massachusetts Bay, and including a serious look at the presence of religion and divinity in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, this course will offer the chance for close reading and serious discussion of founding documents and current debates.

God & Government in America will be taught by Dr. Peter Temes and independent scholar David Nielsen on the evenings of November 13, 20, 27, 29, and December 1 and 4, as well as over lunch on December 8.

Note: Each course is free and open to the public, and not all are interrelated or cumulative. If you would like to attend all courses, you must RSVP for each separately. Signing up for one does not sign you up for all. We welcome any and all perspectives to the discussion!
