One Off Journal Issues: The View From Late Antiquity: Engaging the Political in the Religious Studies Classroom: Lessons from Studying Religion in Late Antiquity

Diane shane fruchtman


How and why should scholars of pre-modern topics in Religious Studies responsibly incorporate politics into the classroom? This piece introduces the reader to these questions and our motivations for asking them as scholars of late antiquity. It orients readers to this Special Issue, framing the contributors' motivations for wanting to engage politics in the classroom and for producing this special issue. It introduces “late antiquity” and addresses the question of how religious studies instructors, whether teaching late ancient topics or not, can responsibly address the political present.
