The Theological Origins of Liberalism

Full Product Description

This book investigates the theological relationship between liberalism and Christianity. It examines the Protestant foundations in liberalism, the origins of social contract doctrine and federalism lying in covenant theology, the liberal political theology of John Locke and the theological foundations in the tradition of natural law and natural rights. Scrutinizing the time interval between 1500 and 1750, it demonstrates how theologians and political writers contributed to the formation of the first proto-liberal and liberal ideas and doctrines by using Christian premises. It finally argues that liberalism was founded on a set of presuppositions borrowed from Christian theology in the post-Reformation and early modern period. It also puts forward a legally pluralist liberal theory as a solution for the multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies.

The Theological Origins of Liberalism by Ismail Kurun was published by Lexington Books in July 2016. The ISBN for The Theological Origins of Liberalism is 9781498527408.
