About

Contemporary systematic theology is almost always carried out in deep
dialogue with historical tradition. The critical retrieval of historical
material is one of its main methods. For this reason, knowledge of
classical texts is crucial for advanced work in the field of systematic
theology. In this course, we study a few central works in the history of
theology in order to deepen our understanding of different positions
and ways of doing theology.

Course work is focused on a close reading of
primary texts from one or several theological traditions, such as the
patristic, scholastic, reformed or radical-reformation traditions. In
this way, the course provides an excellent foundation for further work
in systematic theology or its neighbouring disciplines.
