The first section of the course will consider the historical development of Anglican social ethics, with special attention to the significance of patristic sources, Catholic Social Thought, the Clapham sect, and Oxford Movement on the formation of an Anglican social ethics, oriented especially towards the care of the poor.

The second section will examine more recent examples of Anglican social ethics in relationship to contemporary challenges such as poverty, apartheid, racial discrimination, and challenges in a global church. This section will feature guest lectures by the Rev. Dr. Ross Kane of Virginia Theological Seminary. The focus in this section will be constructively analyzing how Anglican Social Thought can serve as a connecting bridge across our divided communion.

Final projects may be either historical scholarly essays or constructive projects retrieving Anglican Social Thought for a parish or ministry setting.

The majority of the reading and course assignments for Anglican Social Ethics will be completed at a distance from January 30 to May 12. Students will meet together for two periods of time (February 16-18 and April 27-29). All students are encouraged to meet on Nashotah’s campus for these meetings, but may also participate remotely.
