This course explores the truth, goodness, and beauty of Catholicism as manifested in great theological texts, lives of saints, artistic masterpieces, historical landmarks, and miracles connected with the Eternal City.
*We consider various objections to Catholic faith from Judaism, Islam, Protestantism, and secular reason.
Some of the Sites:
The director of Rome and the Catholic Church, Dr. Christopher Malloy received his Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America. He has been teaching at the University of Dallas since 2001. He approaches the theological vocation with the conviction that philosophy and theology, faith and reason, serious intellectual research and fidelity to the full deposit of Catholic faith, work harmoniously toward one end - the contemplation and love of truth. His research interests include St. Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, Bonaventure, John Duns Scotus, and Matthias Scheeben.
Dr. Malloy will be assisted by an able team of undergraduate and graduate students who have experience in leading student groups on study-abroad programs.
The University of Dallas’s beautiful Eugene Constantin Rome Campus at Due Santi is located on the western slopes of the Alban Hills, about twelve miles southeast of the center of Rome, in one of the city’s most attractive suburbs. Less than two miles away, in the small town of Castel Gandolfo, is the Palazzo Papale, a majestic palace that serves as the Pope’s summer residence. Thanks to this unique location and the comfortable Due Santi campus itself, UD Rome is a perfect place for students, faculty, and staff to get to know one another and to learn together.
