Political theology is a branch of both political philosophy and theology that investigates the ways in which theological concepts or ways of thinking underlie political, social, economic and cultural discourses. Though the relationship between Christianity and politics has been debated since the time of Jesus, political theology as an academic discipline arose in the latter part of the 20th century, partially as a response to the work of both Carl Schmitt and the Frankfurt School.
