Introduction to Theology

This course, taught by Ted Vial at Iliff School of Theology, is an introduction to Christian theology will focus on systematic theology, that is, what are the traditional loci (topics or rubrics) that form a complete theological system, how do they fit together, and how does thinking them as a system influence theological thinking? We will look at how the Christian theological tradition provides resources for contemporary theology. As examples we will take a close look at the locus of theological anthropology.

This class will provide an introduction to artificial intelligence, and get at what it means to be human by asking some of the questions AI raises about the nature of humans: what is the relationship of humans to technology? What is intelligence? Must intelligence be embodied? Must it be social? Must it have a culture? What is the place of humans in the cosmos? Etc.

Ethical Analysis and Advocacy II

This course, taught by Jennifer S. Leath at Iliff School of Theology, invites students to think about ethical analysis and advocacy from a variety of different lenses. Beginning with attention to ancient Egyptian and Greek morality, this course provides a framework for modern historic, modern, and post-modern models of ethical analysis. Interwoven throughout this course are historical accounts and writings that have defined Christian ethics and contemporary challenges of advocacy that surface through an emphasis on contemporary voter suppression. Defining, describing and deepening students’ knowledge of ethical analysis, this course also introduces students to advocacy through multi-media explorations of ethics in action, classroom exercises, and presentations that demonstrate students’ application of the theoretical approaches to ethics introduced throughout the class. The framework of this course follows virtues and a liberal arts curriculum uncovered through research of Ancient Egypt.
