Offered in Fall 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2006 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The purpose of this course is to survey the contemporary trends in the theology of faith and culture with an emphasis on mission, dialogue, inculturation, and the emergence of contextual theologies.  We will survey some of the various models, methods, and issues involved in these trends.  The course will also highlight certain tensions arising from this context such as, the local—universal church tension, the dialogue—evangelism tension, the inculturation—syncretism tension, and the question of a theology of religions.  The orientation will be the Ignatian Presupposition for intercultural-interreligious engagement, and developing this with some ideas from Bernard Lonergan.
