Is Franciscan Theology still relevant today? The course will examine such Franciscan theologians as Alexander of Hales, Bonaventure, Duns Scotus and Peter John Olivi in comparison with modern and contemporary theology and philosophy to answer the following questions from a Franciscan perspective: Is theology a true science? What is God and how is God related to the world? How does the Trinity make any sense? What’s so special about the person of Christ? What is more important to us: the will or the intellect? What does the Holy Spirit have to do with history? What does theology have to do with socio-economics? The course will be based around discussions of most interesting topics and will feature several guest speakers.
