„We will fight the good fight!“ – A history of fundamentalism

Holy rage and violence in the name of God? Religious fundamentalism seems to be a challenging topic for modernity, an encounter with the irrational. Yet fundamentalism is a surprisingly modern concept and known to all great world religions. In this seminary we will trace back the origins of Fundamentalism both in the deserts of the Middle East and the Middle West as well as in the libraries and aisles of the great western universities. We will explore the history of this concept in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, learn to distinguish between Fundamentalism and Traditionalism and to understand the role of violence and religious struggle for those who see themselves to be at war with the modern world and God were on their side.
