Knowledge-Values Courses: Christian Tradition

What does it mean to be Catholic?  Contrary to our expectations, the Roman Catholic tradition does not offer one single, unproblematic answer to this seemingly simple question; rather, Catholicism can be described in terms of ongoing negotiations in which it struggles with this question.  This course explores the "hotspots" of these negotiations, both historical and contemporary.
