Trinitarian Ontology

The degree programme offers a unique and innovative approach by allowing for interaction between the fields of theology, philosophy and epistemology in the perspective of a universal “theor-ethical” meaning of the event of Jesus Christ and the figure of God the Trinity disclosed by it. On the basis of a specific re-interpretation of the history of thought in its various cultural expressions and articulation in the fields of study, it proposes a performative paradigm of relational interpretation of the person, history, and the cosmos. The degree can be attained in and of itself, or as a double-degree through accredited conventions with other Faculties of Theology and Philosophy.
