TRADITION IN PROGRESS:  Doing Theology with the Fathers of the Church

Presented by Eric Mabry

This course invites students into the way of doing theology practiced by the Fathers of the Church, so that our contexts and situations may be lit by the same fire which animated their own. The Fathers, almost without exception, were pastors. Their theology, therefore, is fundamentally one of encounter and relationship. Looking to the Fathers helps us to discover what it means for us to be bearers of the Tradition today, so that we can more adequately and humbly appropriate the task of mercy to which we have all been called.

500 YEARS: LUTHER TO VATICAN ll and BEYOND

Presented by Patricia O'Reilly and Scott Lewis, S.J. 

2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation. On 31st October 1517, Martin Luther, one of the most influential figures in Western history, nailed his 95 theses, to the door of a Wittenberg Church. Luther’s writings were responsible for sparking the Protestant Reformation as well as reform within the Catholic Church. His central teachings, that the Bible is the central source of religious authority and that salvation comes through faith and not deeds, shaped the core of Protestantism.  Unfortunately, his radical writings against Jews contributed to the rise of German anti-Semitism.

Luther is a courageous and controversial figure. Not all of his theological insights have been universally accepted, but his emphasis on personal conversion and encounter with the scriptures are his legacy to all Christians. As we tour the land of the Reformation, tracing Luther’s footsteps in major cities and small medieval towns, we will make connections between the Reformation and the 500 years of Church History leading to the Second Vatican Council and onward to 2017.

“You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.” Martin Luther
