Dogmatics II

A study of particular elements of Asian and Filipino folk Christianity in the light of Church documents on inculturation and of recent hypotheses proposed by contemporary theologians and scientists. This course aims to nurture an awareness of the mystagogical process by which Ruach Elohim (God’s Spirit) is at work in the lives of individuals and in the world, fulfilling the promise of the Son that “the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of all that I have said to you” (John 14:26). Students will engage with readings that show the historical development of pneumatology in the Catholic Church as the Church interfaces with different cultures and contexts, touching on expressions of this understanding in the Hebrew Bible and Christian Scriptures, Latin and Eastern Churches, Vatican II, the FABC, and post-conciliar theologians. Learning will be facilitated by personal journaling and weekly papers.
