Fundamental Moral Theology

Fundamental Moral Theology at the University of Fribourg is taught from within the Dominican Tradition of using the Works of Thomas Aquinas as a resource and guide, but read in light of his biblical and patristic sources and in dialogue with contemporary questions.  It is the study of human acts, emotions and virtues as guided by reason and revelation, animated, healed and elevated by grace and ordered to the Triune God through the mystery of Christ and his Cross.
