THEOL 333 - Marriage and Sexuality


Credits: (3)
The theology and ethics of marriage and human sexuality inquiries into the personal, social, and spiritual significance of these aspects of the Catholic vision of the human person and human society. This course develops an understanding of the broad vision of marriage and sexuality as developed within Catholic theology in particular, but also Christian ethics more broadly. Within that context, it engages an analysis of current ethical issues: contraception, same-sex relationships, divorce and remarriage, sexual harassment and violence, and more. Furthermore, it pays particular attention to the increasing role that sexual justice plays in the discussion of the social and ecclesial dimensions of marriage and sexuality. The course draws not only from primary texts of scripture and tradition, but also contemporary sources and reflections on sexual ethics.
