Trinity and Creation

This course, taught by Jeremy Blackwood at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology, introduces the student to the vast heritage of the Judeo-Christian experience of, and reflection on, God and creation. It treats of the principle conceptions of God as found in the Bible and in magisterial documents, as well as in patristic, medieval, and contemporary theological speculations. It gives special attention to the doctrine of the Trinity.

Put succinctly, the course will review (1) what Christianity has affirmed to be true about God as triune; (2) the grounds for that affirmation in the development of Judaism and Christianity; and (3) how that affirmation can be both understood and made pastorally relevant in a contemporary context.
