The Making of Catholic Theology: The Patristic Period

This course will study the early centuries of the Church’s history. These witnessed the search for true Christian identity in relation to the acknowledged ancestry in Judaism. It was a period of developing dialogue with the surrounding cultures, and the critical appropriation of some of the best elements of the philosophical schools. The variety of genres of patristic writings will be explored and students will be encouraged to adopt a ‘hands-on’ approach to reading selected patristic texts.
