FRAN 130/131 - Seminar on Beauty

(0/1 credits)
This course is designed to help the students involved in the Franciscan Experience to deepen their Catholic faith by addressing the transcendentals, specifically Beauty. The course will focus on Beauty as a reflection of God’s creative goodness and the human experience which reveals it. The Catholic faith will provide the framework through which students will grow in their experiential knowledge of beauty in the areas of history, philosophy, theology, art, literature, and morality. Students will read the Church Fathers, Scholastic theologians, and contemporary discourse regarding beauty, goodness, truth, and unity. They will learn how to appreciate beauty wherever it is found.  Fall and Spring
