CEMT 511 Introduction to Moral Theology

[3]

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to questions about what it means to be a moral person in our contemporary world. In particular, we will examine what it means to be a Christian moral person — that is, what Christian faith and tradition contribute to our understanding of a moral universe. We will begin with an examination of moral formation in community. We will then discuss ethical principles as they have emerged throughout the Christian tradition. Through readings on “modernity” and “post-modernity,” we will explore how such resources can be used to assist in discerning Christian moral life today.
