Fall 2019 Courses

THE 290: Doctors of the Church [3 sem. hours Fr. Clinton Sensat, STL]

Description: According to the classic definition given by Prosperous Lambertini (later Pope Benedict XIV), the three marks of a Doctor of the universal Church are holiness of life, eminence of doctrine, and ecclesiastical approbation. This course will investigate the charism of a Doctor of the Church. It will also give at least an hour to each of the 36 Doctors, focusing on the eminence of their doctrine. The goal is to give the student an appreciation for the theological contribution of each Doctor, and provide a basis for deeper personal study of individual Doctors.
