Om et par dager, mandag 20/2, begynner mine økumeniske studier på Angelicum. Jeg skal ha seks ulike klaser, med følgende innhold (sortert etter ukedagene):
The Holy Spirit. Conflict and Controversy: An Ecumenical Perspective.
The Person of the Holy Spirit has historically been at the centre of much conflict and controversy. This course will consider themes which have been debated and even fought over in the past. If the unity of Christians is to be achieved some consensus much be arrived at concerning the Holy Spirit. A sound theological solution can arise from ecumenical discussion and agreement. We shall try to discover the possibilities and progress made during the last 50 years.
Prof. J. PUGLISI Mon. 8.30 – 10.15
Reception and Non-Reception in the Life of the Church.
The term reception is appearing frequently in contemporary papal and theological writings, as well as in the documents of other Christian communities. This course plans to study the history, meaning and relevance of the name and fact of both reception and non-reception in the Church’s life.
Prof. F. BLISS Tue. 8.30 – 10.15
History of Spirituality.
An Overview on Benedictine, Carmelite, Franciscan, Dominican and Ignatian Spirituality.
This course will place these give distinctive spiritualities in the perspective of their historical development and unique contributions to roman Catholic spirituality. In addition to studying their distinctive characteristics, the practical application of the teachings of these traditions as sources of wisdom and discernment in our spiritual lives will be offered.

ARCIC and BEM: Theological Consensus.
ARCIC (Anglican – Roman Catholic International Comission) and BEM
(Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry, Faith and Oder, Lima 1983)are major landmarks in ecumenical dialogue. The factors involved in their realisation must be studied in detail. The reactions positive and negative for their reception likewise necessitate enquiry.
Prof. R.J. TAYLOR Fri. 10.30 – 12.15
(CHAIR TILLARD – Intensive course)
Presuppositions, Concepts, and Methods of Ecumenical Dialogue.
This course will focus mainly, but not exclusively, on the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Dialogue (justification, communion of saints, the papacy, and primacy). The required presuppositions, and the concepts and methods of ecumenical dialogue will be examined. From this survey new concepts and methods will be identified. The Course will show how these concepts and methods influence the reception of ecumenical work in the churches.
Prof. W.G. RUSCH Ma/Tu/We 10.30 – 12.15 (6 -29 March)
Det siste kurset på listen går bare over fire uker, med tre dobbeltimer hver av de fire ukene, og tar opp spesielt den luthersk-katolske dialogen.
