ADTH 101701  Introduction to Christian Theology II: Shaping Cultural Traditions
ADTH101702 Syllabus - Prof. Severson
What does it mean to be good? Is it possible to be both good and happy, both good and successful? Is morality subjective or are there clear ways to regulate it? How can we balance the individual and the community in our moral struggles? This course examines eight traditions of morality and ethics: existentialist, utilitarian, Catholic, Protestant, Christian feminist, Black theology, rights theories, and Aristotle. Students apply classic and modern thinkers to contemporary ethical problems emphasizing current events and movies. Interactive discussion emphasized so students discover the sources of values that formed their lives and develop a perspective for themselves and their futures.

ADTH 300201  Catholic Crisis Points II: Twelve Events that Transformed the Church
ADTH300201 Syllabus
This course is the second in a two-course sequence, which offers a comprehensive introduction to the conciliar traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. This second course covers the period beginning with the Council of Trent and ending with the Second Vatican Council, with an extended exploration of Vatican II’s interpretation and reception, offering an historically-schematized overview of the councils of this period. This course attends to the evolution of the place of councils within the modern Catholic Church and it situates these conciliar traditions within their wider historical, political, and cultural contexts. In this way, the course completes a comprehensive introduction to the history of the Catholic Church and its central theological tenets.
