Carl Schmitt And The True German Origins Of Political Theology

PaCT Fellow Dr Jonathan Cole has published a piece in The New Polis website titled ‘Carl Schmitt And The True German Origins Of Political Theology’.

Although some argue that Carl Schmitt was the progenitor of political theology, Dr Cole argues the opposite in this article: "The fact remains that Schmitt appears to have played no meaningful role in the birth of political theology in English-language scholarship."
