THEO 550 – Theology of Creation and Eschatology
Wednesday evenings, August 16 – December 13
5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | Holy Spirit College, Malta Hall
Fr. Josh Allen, STL


This course considers the origin of the universe as revealed and as understood existentially in religious philosophy, as well as the origin and destiny of humanity. The course examines the development of Christian thought on these topics, giving emphasis to biblical texts. In relation to creation, the course will investigate interpretations of the Hexaemeron, the relationship of the doctrine of creation to ontology, the distinction of primary/supernatural causation and secondary/natural causation, and contemporary issues and challenges for belief in a Creator. In relation to eschatology, the course will treat such topics as heaven, purgatory, and hell, prayer for deceased human persons, gradations of beatitude, all in light of Patristic authors, Aquinas’s Summa theologiae, and contemporary writings in Roman Catholic sacred theology. (3 credit hours; $1,470 for credit; audit fee $300)

THEO 690 – St. Augustine of Hippo
Monday Mornings, August 14 – December 11
9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. | Holy Spirit College, Malta Hall
Fr. Josh Allen, STL

St. Augustine of Hippo was one of the most influential figures in the history of the Church and arguably the finest theologian who has ever lived. Many of the ideas St. Augustine developed have formed the foundation of our understanding of theology for centuries. In this class, we will seek to understand the major themes in St. Augustine’s writings, focusing on some of his commentaries on Scripture, his dialogue writings, and most especially, the Confessions - without question his most famous book.  Students will be introduced to one of the greatest and most humble minds in history, and will have the opportunity to see how St. Augustine’s thought developed over time, and how he has been interpreted and misinterpreted through the centuries.
(1.5 credit hours; $735 for credit; $150 audit fee).
