This course aims to familiarize students with the key debates of twentieth-century theology which form the backdrop to the Second Vatican Council and still significantly influence its interpretation today. Particular attention will be given to the relation between nature and grace, as well as the relation between being and love, in light of a renewed interpretation of Thomas Aquinas. Authors studied include Blondel, de Lubac, Gilson, Ratzinger, and Congar.
