About the Course

One of the main tasks of systematic theology is to reflect on what the Christian tradition means when it speaks of God. Every other theological topic is related to this. This course investigates this key question, both in its own right, in relation one or several of the traditional loci of systematic theology, and in relation to the overarching architectonics of the subject. Things that may be explored are, for instance, questions of the divine nature and attributes, trinity, Christology, and pneumatology. Course work is focused around the reading of primary texts, as well as on understanding these in relation to overarching theoretical themes in academic theology.
