What is an Encyclical? And why does bioethics matter to me? Once a week over four weeks, join Dr. Correira and learn what Pope Saint John Paul II wrote about bioethics and “The Gospel of Life” in a dynamic study of moral theology and medicine.
This series focuses on two encyclicals of Pope Saint John Paul II written in the 1990’s that are essential readings in bioethics and moral theology. Encyclicals aren’t written just for theologians! As laymen, we can (and should!) be studying the writings as well, to gain a rich understanding of how to think and live in our culture today. In this course, we will dive into Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life).
Class 1: Evangelium Vitae (EV) Introduction & Chapter 1 (pp. 1 – 23; §1 – 28)
Class 2: EV Chapter 2 (pp. 23 – 41; §29 – 51)
Class 3: EV Chapter 3 (pp. 41 – 62; §52 – 77)
Class 4: EV Chapter 4 & Conclusion (pp. 62 – 83; §77 – 105)
