The Institute for Hispanic/Latino Theology and Ministry Course Offerings

Institute Course Offerings

  • The ministerial praxis and practical theology methods of the U.S. Hispanic/Latino(a) Church. We explore the missiological implications of inculturation, U.S. Hispanic/Latino ecclesiology, theology of ministry, and contextual theology.

  • An examination of the contribution that this contextual theology is making to theological method, inculturation, systematic theology, ecclesiology, social ethics, biblical interpretation, and feminist thought.

  • The practices of popular Latino religious expression and their origins in Medieval Iberian piety and in Latin American Catholicism.

  • The critical reflections and voices of Hispanic/Latina women. Emphasis will be placed on the Feminista/ Mujerista theologians who attempt to understand and articulate the lived experience of faith of Hispanic women in the United States.

  • Examination of liturgical inculturation, popular liturgical practices, and preaching within the context of the Latino culture.

  • An in-depth examination of Christian spirituality in light of U.S. Hispanic/Latino experience. This course models Hispanic/Latino spirituality as a public pursuit of wholeness and investigates the subject matter through the organizing principles of the family, mestizaje, popular religion/sacramentality, and festive hope. It examines these within the context of the encounter of Latino cultures with globalization, modernity, and U.S. culture.
