TH 303 - Ethics: Ancient, Modern, and Christian Approaches to Ethics

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: TH 201 . Studies the ways in which Christians of the first six centuries answered the question: How should one live? Pays particular attention to the themes which emerge in their answers to this question; e.g., the imitation of Christ, holiness, and the virtues. While some New Testament texts are included in the reading, the primary focus is on the writings of the Church Fathers. The last section of the course studies the writings of twentieth-century ethicists and some contemporary literature to see how these themes of holiness and virtue are developed in recent ethical reflection and discussion.
