This course will explore how the Christo-centric theology of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI sheds light into ecclesiology, ecumenism, biblical interpretation, Christology and politics. As a modern theologian, Ratzinger deals with pastoral questions related to ecumenism, faith in politics, inculturation, interpretation of Vatican II documents, the relationship of the universal and particular church, and beauty in the liturgy. This course intends to show how Ratzinger's theology makes the faith more accessible and attractive.
