THEO 7676 Theological Aesthetics (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Among the issues to be addressed are: theology and spirituality; the Christological foundation of theological aesthetics; popular Catholicism as liberating aesthetic practices; the relationship between liberation theology and theological aesthetics; theology and the arts.
