TITLE Reconciliation: Theological and Ethical Aspects

LEVEL 04 - Years 4, 5 in Modular UG or PG Cert Course


DEPARTMENT Moral Theology

DESCRIPTION Pre-requisite:

Basic studies in theology or a relevant area of study

In an increasingly fragmented world, reconciliation is seen as an essential attitude in interpersonal and social relations. The New Testament presents it as the basic Christian attitude, given to us by God in Christ, and the Church nowadays understands herself more and more as a reconciling community, herself in need of reconciliation. Within this wider understanding of reconciliation, this course also reflects on our contemporary understanding of sin in its personal and social aspects, and of the sacrament of reconciliation.
