This course invites students to a sustained encounter with the life and work of major theologians who have contributed decisively to the formulation and development of the Christian theological tradition. Theologians considered may include figures such as Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Schleiermacher, Barth, von Balthasar, and Torrance.  By way of extensive engagement with primary texts in the context of shared seminar discussion, we will explore the distinctive contributions made by the particular theologian(s) under consideration with a view to illuminating their significance in the formulation of Christian doctrine as well as enhancing our understanding of the nature, responsibilities and craft of theology as such.
