The course itself takes the full academic year (Fall and Winter), and it will introduce students to the fundamentals of Biblical Hebrew, including phonology (sounds), morphology (grammatical forms), basic syntax (the components of meaning text units), and the most frequent vocabulary. At the end of the whole year course, students will have acquired rudimentary skills useful for the purposes of homiletical exegesis, scholarship pursuit, and the general pleasure of textual theological interpretations.

Foundations of Theology

SMT1101HF L0101 SESSION: Fall 2022 INSTRUCTOR(S): Fortin, Jean-Pierre

COLLEGE: St. Michael's College SCHEDULE: Thu TIME: 17:00 to 19:00

CREDITS: One Credit

This course will invite students to engage significant challenges confronting the contemporary practice of theology in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Christian Churches (such as: secularization, racism, colonization, gender discrimination, sex abuse crisis). Careful attention will then be given to elements of theological reflection, with emphasis on theological method, revelation, faith, scripture, tradition, dogma and its development, teaching office (magisterium), the theologian, infallibility, and historicity. Assuming the redefining impact of globalization and religious pluralism on the understanding and practice of theology, the course aims at enabling students to critically assess and appropriate the resources of Christian tradition so as to be able to define and contribute to Roman Catholic and Eastern Christian theology tailored for the twenty-first century.
