C340 Eucharist (Barratt)
An historical, theological and pastoral examination of the Eucharistic liturgy as the “source and summit” of Christian ecclesial identity and action. Topics will include the evolution of eucharistic ritual and theology in the east and west, the centrality of eucharist in relation to the other sacraments and rites of the church, developments in eucharistic practice and understanding leading up to and flowing from Vatican II (both official documents and contemporary theological insights) and the role of eucharist in ecumenical, intercultural, and social justice considerations.
Wednesdays, 6 -10 p.m.
April - 24 May 15; May 29 - June 26, 2013
