The Church | Dominican University College

After studying the scriptural foundations of the Church, this course will evaluate the historical questions, the nature, (Body of Christ, People of God, Communion...), the mission, the characteristics and the ministries of the Church. The following themes will act as backdrop to the course: the divine plan, the Incarnation and the Church, the Trinity and the Church, salvation and the Church, unity and diversity, authority and collegiality, œcumenism and religious pluralism. A critical reading of texts from theologians (Cyprian, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas...), from the magisterium (Lumen gentium, Dominus Jesus...) and from other Christian churches will allow for proper contextualization and focus to better understand contemporary issues in the Church.
