John Wesley: Catholic Evangelical
Available for Remote Access. Please Contact the Registrar's Office
Examining chiefly Wesley's "Sermons on Several Occasions" (i.e., tracts), the course delineates Wesley's theological identity. It locates Wesley in his immediate environment: theological, religious, intellectual and social. It honours Wesley's insistence on a "practical divinity" that subserves evangelism and Christian formation rather than speculation--without thereby sacrificing theological substance, academic integrity or ecumenical significance. It probes important aspects of his theological formation; e.g., his grasp of the Magisterial and English Reformation, his expertise in Patristics, his debt to the Puritans, his affinity with aspects of Eastern Orthodoxy, and his appreciation of Counter-Reformation spirituality.
