Thinking the World of God: Religious Language Beyond Onto/Theology

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

(How) Can the language of creation adequately reveal God if the God of Creation transcends creation? This perennial question has most often been approached within an analogical view of language which presupposes an onto/theological view of the God/world relationship. Attentive to the influence of the Great Chain of Being, we shall also examine whether there has ever been a visible alternative. Is it possible to see transcendence and immanence not as attributes of God and creation, respectively, but as facets of creation and thus creational revelation?

Religious Pluralism and the Church

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

An introduction to the contemporary experience of religious diversity and pluralism as an ecclesiological issue, raising questions about nature and mission of the Church.  In the first major unit, we will briefly trace the historical background of this contemporary conversation, beginning with Biblical traditions and concluding with major positions in the theology of religions.  The second major unit takes up such topics as revelation, covenant and the reign of God in interreligious perspective.  Then, in the final unit, we will focus more narrowly upon the challenges of interreligious dialogue and comparative theology in the Catholic encounter with Hinduism.  The course will be conducted seminar style.  Essay assignments include an academic book review and a major research paper.  Although most course readings emerge from the context of post-Vatican II Catholicism, students will be welcome to explore comparable developments outside this tradition in their major papers.
