The course introduces the student to the discipline of moral theology. It pays special attention to the major themes of the encyclical Veritatis Splendor: teleology, the doctrine of the imago Dei, natural law, the action theory implicit in the analysis of “object, end, and circumstances,” and the Beatitudes. The course treats the sources of moral theology and provides a short history of the discipline from the period of the Fathers to Vatican Council II.
