THEO 7004 Thomas Aquinas: A Christological Theology (Fall: 3 )
Christ’s place in the Summa theologiae (ST) of Thomas Aquinas can best be understood by an ordering principle according to which all being comes and receives its plentitude from God (exitus), and every being tends toward its plentitude by a return (reditus) to its source in God through Christ. This course will explore this return “through Christ” in light of that principle: One must come to knows God’s existence, the mystery of the Trinity, source of all of creation, and the mystery of created and fallen humanity (ST I), before one can then show that our return to God and the attainment of our ultimate end, eternal beatitude, is possible only through the person and mission of Christ Jesus (ST III).
