I. School of Orthodox Theology at Trinity College
(Toronto School of Theology, University of Toronto).

TRH2452 Modern Orthodox Theology (15th to 21st c.) This course studies Orthodox theology from the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the present, with a focus on the Orthodox theological and spiritual revival in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially the Russian religious renaissance and neopatristic theology. Emphasis on readings and discussion of major primary texts.

TRT2311 Fundamentals of Orthodox Spirituality. This course explores Orthodox spiritual and pastoral guidance from the 1st to the 14th centuries, from both thematic and historical perspectives, beginning with consideration of the goal of Orthodox spirituality as union with God (theosis). The course will then examine the Biblical foundations of spirituality, the contributions of the early Church, monasticism, philosophy, liturgy, mysticism, patristic theology, and the major themes of ascetic theology, following the schema of purification-illumination, perfection. The course will emphasize readings of the classic spiritual texts to the 14th century, including Biblical texts, homilies, catecheses, apophthegma, treatises, discourses, liturgical texts and lives of saints.

TRH2455 Living in the Spirit: Orthodox Spirituality for Modern Times. This course covers modern approaches to the Orthodox concept of theosis, the movement of the Christian into complete life in, through, and with God, through Christ and the Holy Spirit. The course covers the period from the fourteenth century to the present day, and focuses in particular on the leading Orthodox spiritual personalities, movements and writings of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The writings include works of contemplation, monastic and non-monastic texts, sermons and catecheses. 

TRT2651 The Orthodox Church, Christianity and Other Faith Traditions. This course explores how the Orthodox Church views itself (ecclesiology), relations between Orthodoxy and other Christians (ecumenism), and the role of non-Christian religions in God's plan for salvation (religious diversity).

TRT2112 What Do We Really Believe? Dogma, Heresy and Non-Dogmatics in the Orthodox Tradition.  This course explores the faith or beliefs of the Orthodox Church in the light of both patristic and modern Orthodox theology. The Orthodox dogmatic tradition is an expression or manifestation of the living experience of the Church, reflected for example in the liturgy, icons and the lives and writings of the saints, and not only as propositions relating to God or as an integrated logical “system” of thought. Major theological questions will be considered in terms of beliefs essential to the faith (“dogmas”), beliefs declared erroneous by Councils of the Church (“heresies”), and doctrines, teachings and private theological opinions (“theologoumena”).

TRT2820 Methodology and Resources for Theological Studies. The main goal of this course is to strengthen student ability to carry out graduate-level studies and research in theology. This will be accomplished through the acquisition of methodological and other skills for the planning, development and finalization of graduate-level academic requirements (essays, book reports, exams), and familiarization with the range of resources, both written and digital (databases and internet), for theological studies, including dogmatic/systematic theology, history, patristics, spirituality, hagiography, Biblical studies and liturgy. The course will assist students in developing a proposal for thesis research and publishable-quality academic writing.
