010110 VO Introduction to Catholic Theology I (2016S)

3.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 1 - Katholische Theologie

The course “Introduction to Catholic Theology I” deals with main topics of Christian teaching and European thinking. It is focused on Theology and Christology. Both are developed in respect of Jesus of Nazareth who is the very foundation of Christian Theology and the essential link of Christianity to God’s eternal covenant with Israel, because he was a Jew, not a Greek or a Roman. That is why the course also deals with the Christian relationship to Judaism in history and present days, a relation heavy to bear for Jews because of Christian theology and its consequences. Since the 2nd Vatican Council this burden has been recognized at least, although it is still a very long way for Christian Theology to get along with Jesus as a Jew and Judaism as a partner for Christian thinking and teaching.
