Future of Political Theologies

The Berkley Center’s Future of Political Theologies project mapped and analyzed historic and contemporary understandings of political engagement across Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The Berkley Center project engaged political theologies not merely as a set of theoretical concepts, but as religious beliefs and principles that ground political action within contemporary geopolitical struggles. It brought together leading thinkers and practitioners within each tradition—as well as secular counterparts—to examine the contested intersection between religious conviction and the political arena. The project culminated in the publication of Political Theology for a Plural Age (2013), edited by Michael Kessler.
