Course Descriptions:

THEO 505: INTRODUCTION TO THEOLOGY: In the Catholic intellectual tradition, sacred theology pursued as an academic discipline involves “faith seeking understanding”. To acquire this understanding, one must prayerfully immerse himself or herself in what Augustine calls the scientia fidei, “the science of faith”. As an introduction to this discipline, this course provides an overview of both the contemplative and practical areas of theological inquiry. Students will obtain familiarity with all of the special fields of theology and how they integrate together into a unified whole. Students will also obtain a preliminary understanding of the basic notions and vocabulary employed in theology, the general history of the development of Catholic theology, and the distinctive characteristics of particular schools of thought and individual theologians. (1.5 credit hours)

THEO 515: FUNDAMENTAL THEOLOGY: Sacred theology takes its starting point with Divine Revelation, God’s self-communication to the Hebrew Patriarchs, Prophets, and the original Apostles, a historical event which culminates in the Person of Jesus Christ. This course will explore the event of Divine Revelation, consider the means whereby this Revelation is transmitted (Scripture, Tradition, and the Magisterium), examine how doctrine provides a symbol of this communication and develops over time, and investigate the theological virtue of faith which is oriented toward God through the medium of his historical self-revelation. The course will also treat the distinction between public and private revelation, inspiration and prophecy, the fides quae and the fides qua, as well as that between faith and works. (1.5 credit hours)
