Sabine Schratz OP 20 Oct.-17 Nov. 10.30-12.00 noon

Pandemics have been a dreaded scourge throughout the history of humanity. Their personification as the Pale Rider of the Apocalyptic Horsemen not only illustrates the sheer horror and suffering they inflicted on millions of people but also their potential for radical and permanent change. This short module
will look at how former generations lived through and responded to pandemic crises, thereby reshaping society, medicine, economy, religion and art.

08. COVID-19: Is it a crisis or an opportunity for theology?

14 Oct.-18 Nov.
10.15-11:45am
The Coronavirus crisis was a seismic shock to the world. It raises deep questions for theology. Does this pandemic challenge our idea of a loving God? More positively, does the crisis allow us
to reset our understandings of such fundamental areas as the Church; the natural world; community; sacraments and service? Could the pandemic be our unique ‘call to prayer’? How can we go forward as credible witnesses to the God of creation and power?
€55 (5 weeks)
This module will also be offered online.

17. Three funerals and a wedding! Exploring the New Testament Apocalypse

Kieran O’Mahony OSA

9 Oct.-13 Nov. 10.15-11.45am
Kieran O’Mahony OSA
The New Testament Apocalypse has punctuated Christian history at critical moments. In this module, we will read it in its historical context but with a keen eye on today. The text is easily misread and so it is vital to establish what it would have meant to its first hearers before figuring out how it can speak to later generations.
€55 (5 weeks)
This module will also be offered online.

Price: General Admission EUR55.00
