Since the attacks of 9/11, religion has been met with suspicion. Ulrich Schmiedel examines how political theologians in the UK and the US have responded to the terror attacks. Ultimately, he develops the contours of a coalitional and comparative political theology for pluralist societies today.
At least since the attacks of 9/11, religion has been met with suspicion. In this study, Ulrich Schmiedel investigates how political theologians in the UK and the US responded to the terror attacks. The friend-foe distinction, formulated by the German legal and political scholar Carl Schmitt, emerges as a core category in the controversy about liberal and post-liberal theories of religion, stirred up among defenders and despisers of the Global War on Terror. Building on Dorothee Sölle's political theology, Schmiedel draws them into a conversation with Muslim scholars of religion. Ultimately, he develops the contours of a coalitional and comparative political theology for pluralist societies today.
