This class will explore the Dominican tradition of reflection on Christ's gift of himself. Through lecture and seminar discussion, the students will become familiar with the thought of Catherine of Siena and Thomas Aquinas, focusing on key passages from Catherine's Dialogues and Aquinas's Summa Theologiae.
