    Certificate Program

Scope: To know the wide reflection in the Catholic and ecumenical sphere on the complex relationship among mission, proclamation and
dialogue. To promote a missiological study on contemporary perspectives, especially in relation to believers of other religious traditions. To encourage
the student’s involvement through the presentation of one’s own reflection and analysis of one’s own context. To apply the knowledge acquired to
other courses.
Content: The course offers a theological-pastoral reflection on the relationship between mission, interreligious dialogue and Christian proclamation,
starting from the documents of the Second Vatican Council up to the present day and from the contribution of the various contemporary
theological perspectives. The course will examine the challenges from some cultural and religious contexts and the contribution of the local Churches
where dialogue with believers of other traditions is significant.
Methodology: Besides traditional lectures, the active involvement of the students through their personal insights is expected. The final evaluation will be carried out on the basis of an oral examination (in English,
Italian, Spanish)
