Blessed be the Tie that Binds: The Religious History of Texas
February 1 @ 6:30 pm - February 15 @ 8:00 pm
Religion played an important role in the history of Texas. Learn from Dr. Lisa Barnett, TCU lecturer and ordained minister, how competing groups of differing faiths shaped the social and political landscape of the Lone Star State. As Christian denominations grew, split, and evolved, practices within local Texas congregations reflected the broader transformations at work in the rest of the country. Meanwhile, changes that originated inside Texas affected religious communities outside its borders. In addition, non-Christian groups contributed to the state’s diverse religious ethos. Anyone with an interest in Texas history, religious studies, or genealogy will find this class stimulating and informative. Fee $73. Course will met on TCU campus. Discounts available to seniors and TCU faculty, staff, and students.
