THEO-019 Theology of Love
Fall for 2011-2012
“We live with love as if we knew what it was about,” Jean-Luc Marion writes in Prolegomena to Charity. This course will engage the question of what love is about from a distinctively Christian theological perspective, reading both classic religious texts on love and 20th century theology, spirituality, and literature. An always present undercurrent in the course will be love’s response to evil, sin, and suffering—a response made most explicitly in the revelation of love upon Christ’s cross. We will focus special attention both on the relationship of human love with the love of God and on the idea of love as gift.
