Augustine Contemplating the Trinity
We are an academic faculty within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Villanova University, a University with a Roman Catholic and Augustinian heritage. In our research and teaching, we emphasize a broad understanding of the Christian theological tradition in light of the Second Vatican Council and questions raised by modern culture.
- We investigate the implications of theological knowing and cultural expressions of that knowledge, as well as the influence of culture on theology.
- We study these relations from multiple academic perspectives.
- We prepare students to sufficiently master these disciplines for conducting further research (doctoral studies), teaching (secondary schools), or working as a lay minister.
