Mary in Scripture and Tradition

Course Level: Advanced

Course Summary

This is an ADVANCED level course and should not be attempted without sufficient grounding in the basics of the Catholic faith.

Fathers Johann Roten, S.M. and Bert Buby, S.M., two professors at the International Marian Research Institute, and Sister Jean Frisk, an expert in catechesis, designed this course on Mary to foster an appreciation of the place which the Virgin Mary occupies in the history of salvation and in the life of the Church. They also hope to build a more conscious awareness of the Marian dimension of the Catholic life. This advanced level course is enhanced by its link to the Mary Page of the Marian Library at the University of Dayton that contains ecclesial documents, iconography, a listing of apparitions, and practical answers to questions raised about the role of Mary in the Church today.

Upon entering Session 5 the Session Introduction informs the student that there is a choice of two topics, How to Handle Ecumenical Issues, or How to Handle Questions of Apparitions. Students pick one of the two.

Successful completion of this course earns 2.5 CEU's.
