THEO 3577 Conciliar Traditions of the Catholic Church (Fall: 3 )
This course offers an introduction to the conciliar tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. The course will begin with an historical overview of the ecumenical and Catholic councils, from the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople in the early church era, to the Council of Trent and the First Vatican Council in early modernity. It will then turn to an extended exploration of the Second Vatican Council, its interpretation and reception. The course provides an introduction to the development of Catholic theology, in regard to both form and content, from the beginning to the present.
