RS 303 - Symposium on Love

The meaning and nature of love has long been a subject of human inquiry. It is something each of us ponders as well. Using authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Dante, Rumi, C.S. Lewis, Erich Fromm, Benedict XVI and John Paul II, as well as the Song of Songs and the New Testament, this course will explore a variety of perspectives on the meaning of human love. Romantic love, love as friendship, and altruistic love, as well as the understanding of God as love will be explored through film and a variety of theological and literary texts.

1 semester 3 credits.
