Fundamental Moral Theology

Fundamental Moral Theology deals with the foundations of theological ethics. The orientation of the proposed teaching is in virtue ethics, illustrated by Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas, and belonging to the Dominican theological tradition. It draws on the work of St. Thomas Aquinas, read in light of his biblical and patristic sources and in dialogue with contemporary issues. Fundamental Moral Theology studies the happiness or ultimate end of man, the conditions and structure of human action, its interior principles which are the passions and virtues, and its exterior principles which are the law and grace. All these elements are enlightened by reason and by revelation, and animated, healed, and elevated by grace, ordered to God the Trinity by Christ, dead and resurrected to give us Life.
