THEO 7671 Theology of Edward Schillebeeckx (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This doctoral seminar will be devoted to the reading of primary texts from three periods in the work of Edward Schillebeeckx (1914-2009): 1) the early existential-phenomenological retrieval of Thomas Aquinas's theology of sacraments; 2) the shift to historical consciousness and hermeneutics during and after Vatican II, particularly exemplified in his Christology; 3) the shift to critical theory and its critique of modernity, leading to an historical praxis of mysticism and politics in the light of a suffering world.
