Theology 202: Creation and Providence
In Theology 202: Creation and Providence we strive to understand God as the origin and goal of all creatures and their sovereign ruler. We ask about the meaning of “creation” and explore the creation of the invisible world of the angels, the visible cosmos, and especially man, the summit of the material world because he is made “unto the image and likeness of God.” Particular attention is given to the manifestation of God’s goodness in the perfections of creatures, and especially in the gift of sanctifying grace and the theological virtues to men. Also taken up is the question of evil in the perspective of Divine Providence.
