Dennis Tamburello, OFM, PhD
Wednesdays, 6 - 10 PM
April 30 - June 25

This course will examine the Roman Catholic church's involvement in ecumenical and interfaith dialogue since the time of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65).  It will include discussion of the historical context of the dialogue, some of the major primary documents related to it, and the theological and ecclesiological issues that have shaped it.  The course will take a critical look at both the successes and the tensions that have accompanied the dialogue, from both theological and institutional perspectives.
