Theology is the exercise of faith seeking understanding. (St. Anselm) This course provides the basic tools and foundations needed to critically reflect on the experience of faith and for the study of theology within the framework of the Christian tradition in fidelity to the Apostolic faith. It will cover fundamental theology: namely, the possibility, nature, and reality of divine revelation, the credibility of faith and reason, the nature and basis of theology and the relationship between Scripture and Tradition. It will also introduce in brief, the major sub-disciplines within theology - Christology, Trinity, ecclesiology, sacramentology, and so forth. Special consideration will be given to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council.
