Christians and Incarceration

Matthew Larsen

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

Christianity and incarceration have a long and storied history. One way of telling the history of Christianity is through its changing relationship to the carceral practices and geographies. The course explores the changing relationship between Christians and carceral practices and geographies throughout its history, beginning at the origins of what became Christianity in 1st century Palestine and ending with the 2017 Alabama State Legislature’s passing of a bill allowing churches to police their communities.
