Introduction to Homiletics

SMP2301HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course presents the nature and purpose of the liturgical homily. It will provide instruction on the methods and skills necessary for the development of effective homilies. Emphasis will be given to the interplay between Scripture, preacher and assembly. Students will compose and deliver homilies, which will be critically discussed and evaluated by instructor and students. The first weeks of this course are presented as lecture by the professor. Once the basic textbook has been covered, students will preach a minimum of two times, before classmates (and a video camera). Each student will then have an appointment with the professor to review the homily and the evaluations of the classmates. Grading is based on the professor's evaluation of content and presentation, as well as that of the homilist's classmates.
