'A Christian Ending to Our Life' Course Headlines Fall 2018 Offerings at Trinity College

August 25, 2018

There's still time to plan your 2018-2019 theological studies at the Orthodox School of Theology at Trinity College. Register now as an MTS or MDiv student to begin studies in the Fall 2018 term.

Headlining the Fall 2018 offerings is "A Christian Ending to Our Life: Death in Orthodox Tradition." This course will explore through classroom lectures and seminar discussions the Orthodox Christian theological and pastoral tradition surrounding dying and death. This tradition will be contextualised within the thought and praxis of the Scriptures and early church, as well as the treatment of dying and death in different epochs of western civilisation over the past 2,000 years – as reflected in philosophy, literature, art and community life – culminating in the “death-denying” culture of the 20th century and the crises and ethical dilemmas surrounding death in the early 21st century. Students should emerge from the class able to articulate a thoughtful Orthodox Christian response – both in terms of theology and pastoral practice – to issues of human life, dying and death today.

Other courses on offer include:

If you have started to take courses for credit but have not yet been fully admitted, this is a good time to sort that out and make future course registration much smoother.

All courses may be audited (towards a certificate in Orthodox studies) or taken for graduate university credit (including as part of an MTS or MDiv degree). New students are always welcome. Online courses are accessible from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
