This course examines the relationship between faith and reason according to the themes presented in the encyclical Fides et Ratio by Pope St. John Paul II. Particular focus is given to the range of unaided reason and the importance of metaphysics and the natural law, the nature and intelligibility of revealed truths, the roles of the intellect and the will in the act of faith, the relationship between faith and science, and the implications of these principles for the Church’s relation with the temporal power.
