The cTPM is a place of research. However, research for the sake of research is useless. Hence, the members of the cTPM also provide the students of the Catholic Theological Faculty, Charles University with courses based on their findings. All courses are taught in English. List of courses
First Semester 2016/17
CHRISTIANITY AND CONTEMPORARY CULTURE
Teacher: Martin Kočí
The course focuses on the present-day situation of Christianity. Culturally, we find ourselves after Christendom, in a secular society where traditional religions loses its dominant position. Philosophically, we have experienced the end of metaphysics and the overcoming of onto-theology. The so-called theological turns in contemporary thought reconsider Christian issues against this background. We will look at the key challenges of Christianity in a contemporary postmodern context.
THEOLOGY OF MEDIA AS A THEOLOGY OF CULTURE
Teacher: Gábor Ambrus
The course aims at a theological interpretation of various media such as film, text, painting, diagram. It will seek to go beyond pointing out theological or religious “content” in them; it will strive to outline a theology of mediation as such by moving these media, the idea of mediation and thereby the essential fabric of culture into the heart of theology.
Teacher: Prokop Brož
The course offers an introduction to the basic themes of Catholic Ecclesiology.
