Does Christian faith imply a political doctrine such as a Christian political regime? Drawing on Justin, Tertullian, and Augustine, Prof. Tardivel argues that even as Christian citizenship does not refer to a political doctrine, it nonetheless demands a certain manner of living in the city, presenting a paradox to classical political thinking. This lecture focuses on the paradox of Christian citizenship and its implications.
