The Future of Theology

Filed under: Essays — komonchak @ 1:23 pm

Seven years ago I gave a talk with that title to the fiftieth anniversary convention of the College Theology Society. I have just made it into a Google Document which those interested can access at this url: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1–JZ1RYBUYLkrdF_BGQmczV4xxTQs56fgKCfBYzWlhQ/edit?hl=en&authkey=CJitgOgN 

Here is how it begins:

Forty years ago this week students at the Gregorian University in Rome were taking comprehensive examinations for the Licentiate in Sacred Theology. Lesser areas having been disposed of once and for all by exams at the end of each year, this final exam was totally devoted to dogmatic theology, The material covered every course we had taken in the previous four years, all of it neatly made available to us in a little brochure of fifteen pages entitled Examen peculiare ad Licentiam de universa sacra theologia. (I still have my copy. Does “Komonchak” in Slovak mean “packrat”?)
