THEO-285-01 Christian Thinkers: Karl Rahner
Offered academic year 2007-2008
Karl Rahner, S.J., called “The Church Father of Roman Catholic Theology in the Twentieth Century,” has had a profound influence in the development of Christian Theology in our time. As did that of Thomas Aquinas for many generations, Rahner’s theology now commonly serves as an authoritative point of reference for theologians in the Roman Catholic community and, as well, an important reference for some theologians of other Christian denominations. The course will begin with Rahner’s fundamental analysis of the human person’s relation to God and proceed through his treatment of revelation, faith, Christ, church, sacrament, spirituality and fundamental ethics. It should be noted that Rahner’s writing makes serious demands and would not please a facile or faint hearted reader.
