MAGISTERIUM (3 units)
John Yocum, DPhil
W 2:00-4:40 pm
Fundamental theology endeavors to study the foundational reality of Christianity and theology, which is the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. This revelation seeks a response of faith from the human addressee. (This is the subject matter of Theo 205).
This present course, also included in fundamental theology, deals with the transmission of revelation through the ages, that is, Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, as well as its authoritative proposition and interpretation through the Church’s magisterium. Hence, the three constitutive parts of this course will be concerned with giving a theological description and dogmatic explanation of, respectively, Scripture, Tradition and Magisterium.
Prerequisite: Theo 205—Revelation-Faith.
