Abstract

This chapter explores the relation between theism and the humanities. First, I remind the reader of the long alliance between the humanities and theism, outlining the interplay of theism and the humanities in the West, beginning with Greek and Roman cultures. Then this chapter reviews the much remarked upon “Crisis in the Humanities.” I suggest that there are no good reasons not to recover the older alliance, and I argue that theism and some versions of secular humanism are rightly allies in defense of the humanities.
