Featured Term (selected at random):

DOGMATIC THEOLOGY

The science of Christian doctrine. It treats the teachings of the Church systematically as a whole, and considers each article of faith in its own right and in relation to other dogmas of Catholic Christianity. It proves the doctrines of the Church from Scripture and tradition, illustrates them by suitable comparisons, and shows that they are in harmony with reason. It answers objections from philosophy and other sciences and above all deduces theological consequences from the truths of faith.

All items in this dictionary are from Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary, © Eternal Life. Used with permission.


TOPICS: Apologetics; Catholic; History; Theology
KEYWORDS: apologetics; catholic; theology
For those who doubt:

Straight Vermonter has been doing the links, but I am leaving my request up, because maybe the people who post the links could be a relay team rather than marathon runners.
