ADTH 3002 Catholic Crisis Points II: Twelve Events that Transformed the Church (Spring: 4 )

Course Description

This course is the second in a two-course sequence, which offers a comprehensive introduction to the conciliar traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. This second course covers the period beginning with the Council of Trent and ending with the Second Vatican Council, with an extended exploration of Vatican II’s interpretation and reception, offering an historically-schematized overview of the councils of this period. This course attends to the evolution of the place of councils within the modern Catholic Church and it situates these conciliar traditions within their wider historical, political, and cultural contexts. In this way, the course completes a comprehensive introduction to the history of the Catholic Church and its central theological tenets.
