    Certificate Program

Scope: To get an overview of the theology of religions to thereby enter into contemporary perspectives and to evaluate them with an open yet critical mind.
Content: The course will offer a systematic presentation of the theology of religions right from Scripture down to the present times. Such a presentation
is required to know how this branch of theological science that has developed largely in our modern globalized world helps to understand and review the insights and questions that emerge in regard to the perception
of certain fundamental aspects of the Christian Faith in the context of religious pluralism. It is through the lens of the magisterial teachings that the affirmations made by various authors will be evaluated.
Method: Lectures will be offered through power-point slides encouraging the participation of students through questions, discussions and personal reflections. The examination procedure will be oral.
