THEO 447 - Theologies of the Human Person

3
With all the diversity among individual people, groups within any one society and cultures around the world, what is it that makes one commonly human? The purpose of this course is to discover and deepen one’s theological understanding of the human person. Students begin by exploring understandings and experiences of being human in other cultures, then in their own cultures and religious subcultures and last in the biblical texts. Participants will develop awareness of the complexities of understanding what it means to be human, as well as broaden their cognizance of the variety of such theologies historically, culturally and religiously.
