Description: 

In this course, we will examine some of the major themes related to the impact of inter-church dialogue and action on theological reflection. The course will explore two trends: - Dialogue to promote unity between the Christian Churches; - Joint prayer and action of Christians to promote justice and peace. We will focus on the origin, purpose and character of Ecumenical Theology. We will read extracts from texts in the field of Ecclesiology and Hermeneutics (e.g. The Church: Towards a Common Vision, A Treasure in Earthen Vessels). Students will learn about various methodologies and different models of unity employed in the ecumenical texts. Special attention will be given to the strengths and challenges of ecumenical prayer and to the contribution of decrees of the Second Vatican Council (Unitatis Redintegratio, Gaudium et spes) to Ecumenical Theology.
