TMST 8085 The Christology of Thomas Aquinas (Fall: 3 )
This course provides an introduction to the Christology of Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) primarily as set forth in the Summa theologiae. Through close reading of IIIa qq. 1-59 in English translation), we will consider Aquinas's teaching on the Incarnation and Christ's life and work. The sacraments as extensions of Christ's saving work throughout time and space will also be examined. Primary sources will be supplemented by modern scholarship on various aspects of Aquinas's Christology. Throughout the course we will attend particularly to Aquinas's sources and working method as a scholastic theologian.
