B/C360 - Theological Foundations for Christian Living

B/C360 - Theological Foundations for Christian Living (Johnson)
This course examines key developments of theology of the Christian life in Western Christianity from the eleventh through the thirteenth century. It will focus on the theological virtues of faith, hope, and especially love, as foundational principles for a Christian life of prayer and service to the Church and society. We will approach this theme by concentrating on appropriate selections from four figures of the High Middle Ages: St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Thomas Aquinas, Mechthild of Magdeburg and Hadewijch of Antwerp.
