In this course, students will explore the origins of theological education in the medieval university.  The course begins with the foundations from monastic theology and will then trace the emergence of "scholastic" theology, with particular attention paid to the development of pastoral theology.  Topics will include the sources of theological work; pedagogical practices; the doctrines of Trinity, Christology, and the sacraments; as well as key figures from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries.
