IMTH-700: Fundamental Theology

IMTH700 – Fundamental Theology

2 credits

This course is a study of the character, methodology, and significance of theological knowledge, specifically of Christian revelation.  The first part of the course treats revelation, understood as the fundamental concept of theology—the “science of faith”, as well as the transmission of revelation in the life of the Church.  The second part of the course focuses on the attempt of Fundamental theology to demonstrate how Christian revelation is credible theologically, historically, and anthropologically, for the modern man and woman.  The course will analyze man’s openness to revelation; the relationship between faith and reason; Christology as the foundation of fundamental theology; and the place and the credibility of the Church in handing on revelation.
