History of Christian Life and Thought


George Faithful, Seton Hall University (New Jersey), georgefaithful@gmail.com


What does it mean to be American? What does it mean to be Catholic? What does it mean to be Catholic in America, in all its diversity? How have people of faith responded to and been involved with nationalism, nativism, ecumenism, interreligious dialogue, activism, and political action?


The above questions, while not proscriptive, are offered to stimulate thought on the theme of the 2017 CTS annual convention: American Catholicism in the 21st Century. The historical study of Christian praxis and theology in an essential element for our theme. The History of Christian Life and Thought, therefore, invites papers that address this year’s conference theme through the approach of historical inquiry.


The section invites papers on topics independent of the conference theme; i.e., proposals dealing with other geographic areas and other Christian confessions are also welcome.

The College Theology Society is a registered, non-profit professional society and a Related Scholarly Organization of the American Academy of Religion.
