Volume I, Issue I of Mystērion: The Theology Journal of Boston College features essays from undergraduate students at Boston College, Fordham University, and Princeton University that address important (and difficult) theological questions. Among other topics, this inaugural issue explores the relationship of feminist theology to American religion, the historiography of the now-infamous Salem Witch Trials, the role of prayer and language in the human experience, the Catholic Church’s evolving position on questions of church and state, and how comparative theology can help us better understand human suffering and liberation.
