ICT 105: Theology of the Body

This course seeks to examine and understand questions regarding the theological significance of embodiment as developed throughout Catholic Tradition. Historical in structure, the course focuses on the development of teachings and practices regarding the body in early, medieval, and modern Catholicism, with particular emphasis on the theology of the body developed by St. Pope John Paul II during a series of 129 Wednesday audiences spanning the years 1979-1984. Practices such as asceticism, sexual renunciation, marriage and procreation, suffering, and dying are examined in light of the Church's central doctrines regarding creation and the fall, redemption and incarnation, and death and the resurrection of the body.

ICT 502: Ministry of the Word

Pre-Req (required for all students with no formal college theology)

This course serves as a pre-requisite to prepare for graduate studies, for deeper study in the nature of catechesis and theology. This course provides a survey of the content, purpose and functions of the ministry of the word, the particular focus on the nature of catechesis and theology. "The ministry of the word, within the context of evangelization, transmits Revelation, through the Church, by using human words (GDC #50)." This course surveys the history, methods, content and contemporary practice of catechesis, inspired by God's Pedagogy of Revelation and the Response of Faith. This course introduces the student to the graduate study of sacred theology by examining the nature and mission of theology as an ecclesial vocation, in light of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's 1990 document, "Instruction on the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian" (Donum Veritatis). The nature of theology is examined as a "science" in the classical sense, that is, an intellectual habit which certitude is available through rational reflection, in the light of faith, on divine revelation
