THEO 8618 Development of Theology as a Scientific Study (Fall: 3 )
This course traces the development of theology from a study of the text of Sacred Scripture to the more technical examination of the difficult doctrinal questions raised in reading Scripture. The basic text for organizing these discussions was Peter Lombard’s Sentences. This course will study the methodical issues discussed in the prologues to many of the Commentaries on the Sentences of the 13th and 14th centuries to show the technical development of the formal discussions of these difficult doctrinal questions.
