Generell informasjon

TEOL1415 focuses on the distinctive character, function and task of academic theology within church and society. The course also presents and discusses selected issues within Christian dogmatics, with an emphasis on fundamental questions such as the view of revelation and what appear to be the most important sources for theological reflection.
Seen as Christian interpretation of life, dogmatics gives rise to other questions about the relevance and application of Christianity. That is why it is relevant to discuss the understanding of contemporary theology in light of tradition, reason and experience. The course focuses on issues such as the understanding of God, the trinity, the theology of creation, christology, salvation, ecclesiology and the sacraments.


In order to receive a final assessment, the student must:
  • Submit on Canvas and receive approval for an essay (900-1200 words) by the due date (see the syllabus for details on the topic of the essays and the due date). The essay must include at least two correctly formulated references and a separate bibliography.
  • Take part in a minimum of 60% of the lectures.
  • Participate in the electronic evaluation of the course if such evaluation is stipulated in the relevant term.
  • When course requirements are not fulfilled, this will count as one examination attempt, unless the student withdraws before the set deadline (1 May/November).

Avsluttende vurdering

The final assessment for this course is based on one written exam (4 hours). The course and final exam will be graded A-F.
