We will discuss many theories about the dialectics of religion and political power, referring primarly to our contemporary secular framework, in which resurgences of strong political identities, untraditional spiritual movements and revendications of secular "sacred" values can be founded.

- Religion-Renaissance in the post-secular age

Assessment

The assessment of the student is carried out by an oral examination, considered as the best tool for assessing the level of linguistic competence and the level of learning. The precise knowledge of the subjects of examination, the ability to establish the appropriate connections between the latter and the linguistic property of their exposure are the basic criteria for determining the grade to be given to the student.

Attending students can elaborate a brief essay about the main topics of the course, with the aim at improving the knowledge concerning relevant issues of the course. The essay will discount the number of oral questions. An intermediary examination will be possible, in order to test the reached level of knowledge.
