Reflect on the age-old question of the relationship between God and the existence of evil.  We will investigate classical Christian and Enlightenment writers in order to familiarize ourselves with the history of thought that informs our contemporary discussions.   By the end of this course, you should be able to:
-Identify key texts in the classical and Enlightenment traditions relating to theodicy.
-Rearticulate the main questions undergirding the issue of theodicy.
-Understand how reflections on theodicy have informed modern theological discourse.
