Course: Introduction to Franciscan Theology

Course Description

What is the “new paradigm” that Franciscan Theology contributes to the Catholic tradition? The significant authors of the Franciscan tradition shaped this new approach in the Middle Ages. This course will guide students through an introductory-level study of the themes of the Trinity, Creation, Incarnation, and the human person in major works of these writers. Their relevance today, as expressed in documents of the Papal Magisterium, will be highlighted.
