Scope and Content Note

Common Program Seminars (often referred to in the papers by their course number, CP400) were interdepartmental seminars offered on a wide variety of topics in religion and theology. Topics included theology in America, secularization, revolution and the church, the function of the bible, evil, and the sources and functions of authority. The seminar format called for the presentation of a paper by a different faculty member each week, followed by discussion. This series includes course syllabi, copies of papers presented by Mallard and by others, and detailed minutes of seminar discussions.
