Just War Does the concept of a just war exist? This course centers on the Just War Theory, first developed by Cicero, then expanded by Saint Augustine in his master work, City of God (c. 413-426). To properly confront the subject, we will examine five key conflicts: the Greco-Persian Wars of antiquity, the Crusades of the Middle Ages, the American Civil War, World War II, and the modern War on Terror (e.g. Afghanistan and Iraq Wars). There will be five Sessions.
