THEO 368. Body, Sex and Sacrament

The Christian tradition has always been uncomfortable discussing issues pertaining to the body and sexuality.  Why should this be?  This course examines the reasons for this discomfort and offers a more positive assessment of “embodiment” as a vital aspect of Christian theology and spirituality.  The course will include a constructive interpretation of Catholic teachings about ritual and sacraments, the incarnation of Jesus and human sexuality.
