Trinitarian Ontology
THEOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY AND SCIENCE IN DIALOGUE
The degree programme offers a unique and innovative approach. It combines the study of theology with that of philosophy and epistemology within the perspective of the theoretical and ethical meaning of the event of Jesus Christ and of the concept of Trinity introduced by this event into religion and philosophical thinking.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
The programme will guide students through the study of the value of theological, philosophical and scientific rationality, and the ways in which it evolved and expressed itself, in constant dialogue with the mystery of God and the mystery of being. These expressions of rationality will be analysed both in their distinct epistemic and methodological figures, and in their intrinsic and fruitful reciprocity. They will enter into dialogue with the sapiential worldviews deriving from different religious traditions and interpretations of man and his destiny. The distinctive element of this study and research programme is its relational and trinitarian hermeneutical approach, which gives it an interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary character, allowing for a fruitful interaction between philosophy, theology and science.
