THEOLOGICAL MOVEMENTS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE 20TH CENTURY (STPH-4220)
(09/07/2021-12/17/2021)

Course Memo

Intermediate level seminar in historical theology for MA students and PhD candidates which explores - through a series of assigned readings and seminar style discussions - historical movements in Catholic Theology in the first half of the 20th Century from the viewpoint of dogmatic theology and their underlying philosphical commitments. Among others, we will look at the various movements branded under the heading of 'Modernism', 'Liturgical Reform', 'Neo-Scholasticism', 'Ressourcement', and 'La Nouvelle Théologie'. Students' evaluations will be based primarily on class participation in seminar style class discussions of the readings, the occasional moderating of these discussions, short written assignments, and the completion of a research paper. With the permission of the instructor, students may take this course at a 3000 level (with lesser requirements writing and research).
