RLST 205 - Faith and Franciscanism

(3 credits)
This course systematically explores the Judeo-Christian Tradition, drawing upon biblical, theological, and Franciscan sources. Major themes in the Tradition, including images of the Divine, creation, the experience of evil, the meaning of human suffering, the meaning of faith, and the church as community are investigated. Employing the historical-critical method commonly used in theology, the course invites students to appreciate the Tradition. Through reflection on this rich Tradition, the students’ life histories, and experiences in service projects, the student is invited to personal integration. Counts toward Ethics minor.
