St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians
To compliment much that will be discussed in moral theology and also to help foster habits of regular spiritual reading, each student will be assigned approx. one chapter of St. Paul's Letter to the Corinthians to read each week. On the quiz beginning each Friday class, students should expect at least two or three questions about the assigned chapter, in addition to questions pertaining to class discussion or homework. A semester schedule of assigned chapters will be distributed the first week of classes and will be posted on this website.
As last year, each student will be asked to familiarize themselves with 15 vocabulary words from the back of their bibles. At the beginning of each Wednesday class, students should expect a quiz over these terms, in addition to questions pertaining to class discussion or homework. A semester schedule of assigned words per week will be distributed the first week of classes and will be posted on this website
of the Saints:
To illustrate how the Christian Moral Life can be and has been lived both in ancient and modern times, students will periodically be given packets to read pertaining to the life of various saints/holy persons. Where possible, the packet will also contain excerpts of the saint's own writing. Students will be given about a week to read the packet, and will be quizzed over their reading. .
