THEO 6636 Seven Theological Classics (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course, conducted as a seminar, will devote two sessions to each of seven important texts from the Christian tradition of "systematic," "philosophical," and "speculative" theology. These may include works of Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, Athanasius, Barth, Calvin, Irenaeus, John of Damascus, Newman, Schleiermacher, or other authors as determined by the instructor. Discussion will emphasize "methodological" issues—what each author is doing by saying what he says. Students will be responsible for preparing brief seminar papers and distributing them in advance.
