拉丁文(上)、(下)

Latin (A)、(B)

授課時間:學年課;每年開課

學 分 數:各2(選修)

 

從羅馬帝國承認基督宗教以來,拉丁文成為教會正式的也是最普遍的語言。所有的文件無論法律或禮儀書、大公或地區的會議規定、神學或神修的書都是用拉丁文寫的。假如要做學術程度的研究,參考第一手資料源泉,那麼認識拉丁文是必須的條件。拉丁文為學神學較常用的一些現代語言也很有幫助。

聖經希臘文(上)、(下)

Biblical Greek (A)、(B)

授課時間:學年課;每年開課

學 分 數:各2(選修)

 

我們所認識的新約書都是以希臘文寫的。本課程就是要針對它們而不是學一般的希臘文。由於範圍很具體且有限度所以短時間可以得到良好的效果:認識基本的文法和最常用的詞彙。用功讀書的學生上完本課後應該有能力懂比較簡單或熟習的經文(例如福音)還有了解學術性的文件對原文細節所作的討論。

English for Theological Purposes (I)

授課時間:每年第一學期

課程目標:
Through regular and active participation in the various assignments and activities of this course, students will:

  3. develop skills and strategies for using English- language resources in theological study and research.

課程介紹:

  • This course is designed for students who already have basic proficiency in English and who desire to use English-language resources in theological study or research.
  • English-language theological resources are plentiful and readily available, offering important and enriching opportunities for expanding theological vision.
  • Theology, however, has its own special vocabulary and ways of communicating about religious experience which transcend ordinary language. Thus general language studies do not necessarily prepare students adequately for theological studies.
  • This course will focus on developing reading skills and strategies, with emphasis on sources (e.g., Church documents, catechism, etc.) and vocabulary useful for theological study, as well as for pastoral research.
