JP9515 Grammar of Sacramentality

‘Sacramentality’ refers in the broadest terms to the mystery hidden in God from eternity made incarnate in time and space through the mediation of Being and event, that thereby ‘signifies’, makes present, and proclaims the future eschatological fulfilment of that mystery. The goal in this subject is not the articulation of a sacramental theology (i.e. a theology of the seven sacraments), but rather a broader interrogation about the fundamental sources which ground and inform that theology and theology in general—a theology of sacramentality. Students will be equipped with a body of this knowledge which will enable them to undertake professional work in the field and serve as a basis for further learning.
