Knowledge of philosophy or related studies
This module is introduced by an appreciation of the specificity of the Christian reflection about man as 'creature', 'image' and 'steward' of God in creation, as well as sinner. The experience and language of grace through the ages is then discussed. Man's eschatological fulfillment as member of the pilgrim People of God is then treated, as is the discussion on matters of life and death and what happens after death.
