2010 Winter Newsletter: Christian Hegemony

This issue of my newsletter is about Christian hegemony, the dominance of the western form of Christianity that came to power when the Romans made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire in the fourth century. It is one of the longest-standing systems of institutionalized power in the West. Christian hegemony, the everyday, pervasive, deep-seated and institutionalized dominance of society by Christian institutions, Christian leaders, and Christians as a group, has deeply shaped our lives.
