Theology, Sexuality and Gender (THE1108)

15 credits

This module will enable you to think theologically about sexuality and gender. It addresses problems about the interpretation and use of theological sources (including the Bible). The themes may include:

  • Being theological about sex (desire, marriage and its alternatives)
  • Being theological about gender (the apparent ‘maleness’ of God, one-sex and two-sex theories, , equality, power)
  • Being theological about same-sex love and sexual and gender minorities
  • Accounts of morality and virtue within theologies of sexuality
