Emotions in Religious Experiences in the Thought of Jonathan Edwards and Sarah Coakley: A Comparison

Project Details


This PhD research will analyze the thought of Jonathan Edwards and Sarah Coakley on how they understand emotions and afterwards making a comparison between both. In order to make an adequate comparison, apprehending the context of Edwards as 18th century theologian who involved in his own context and understanding the contemporary context; the context of Coakley, will be necessary. Hence, some efforts will be done in this project: 1) Making an overview of the history of emotions. 2) Zooming up the context of both Edwards and Coakley, and doing a careful analysis of their thought on emotions. 3) Comparing between both and constructing an application to the contemporary polemic (e.g. between Reformed and Charismatic).
