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, open to auditors, on Mondays, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., with Fr. Josh Allen, STL)

THEO 600 – Liturgy and Sacraments
The liturgical life of the Church, especially as it unfolds in the celebration of the seven sacraments, will be explored in this course. Consideration will be given to the development and theology of the Christian liturgy in both the East and the West, with emphasis upon the Roman Rite. The threefold relationship between liturgy, Christian theology, and anthropology will be examined, along with the role of liturgy in the life of the believer and in the life of the Church. The course will also investigate the seven Sacraments as instituted by Christ and as understood in Scripture and Tradition. Questions of minister, recipient, form, matter, and effect will all be examined, together with the relationship between the Sacraments and the Paschal Mystery, the economy of salvation, and the mission of the Church. The Vatican II constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium will be studied as well as relevant passages from Aquinas’s Summa theologiae. (3 credit hours, Mondays / 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., with Fr. Paul Burke, JCL)
