THEO 400 Contemporary Catholicism: Church, World and Theology

Started on January 1, 1970

3 hours
The Catholic Church has undergone a massive amount of change in the thirty years since the close of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). This course will examine the Council in detail in order to understand what changes it began in Catholic worship, practice and thought. Particular emphasis will be given to the new styles of theology, which have become prevalent in the Catholic Church. Selected theologians will be read on a series of important theological issues such as God, Christ, church, ministry, etc.
