The University of Dallas School of Ministry will offer a new continuing education course titled “Christianity in the Second Thousand Years: The Development of the Thought and Practice of Our Faith” beginning this fall. This noncredit course will be offered at three sites: the University of Dallas campus in Irving, All Saints Catholic Community in Dallas and St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Lewisville, with the class at each site meeting once a week for two hours.
The course will highlight some of Christianity’s seminal historical figures, including St. Anselm, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Francis of Assisi, Pope St. John Paul II, Martin Luther, John Henry Newman and dozens of other men and women whose faith and intelligence shaped the core of what Christians believe today. It will also examine cultural issues such as the Crusades, Gothic cathedrals, Reformation, and the councils of Trent, Vatican I and Vatican II.
This purpose of this course is adult faith formation; it involves no tests or homework. Students participate by reading assigned material from textbooks and handouts, then joining in class lectures and discussions.
