This module involves close study of key thinkers in the history of theological ethics, focusing on a key thinker from each of five different historical periods: Bible & early church, patristic, medieval, early modern, and twentieth century. Our goal is to understand how these thinkers relate to one another, how theological ethics relates to other aspects of theology like the study of doctrine and Scripture, and how they continue to influence thinking even today - often without our noticing their influence! The module will also provide helpful background for those students who plan to take 4000-level modules in theological ethics.
