Winter Franciscan Zoom Lecture #9: Dr. Juliet Mousseau, RSCJ
Registration for this lecture is closed.
All education has the capacity to change the life of the learner, and theological education has the added task of building up the faith. The medieval School of Saint-Victor in Paris is known for its model of theological education, which encourages the study of all things to grow in a relationship with God. When Bonaventure quotes Hugh’s Didascalicon in On the Reduction of the Arts to Theology, he is drawing on Hugh’s use of all areas of human knowledge as means to recognize the goodness of God. This lecture will explore the influence of Hugh of Saint Victor’s theory of theological education on Bonaventure’s thought. Both Hugh and Bonaventure offer insight into the transformative power of theological education today.
