Hermeneutics THL514 (Master of Theology) is being taught at United Theological College in 2017 Session 1 by Gerard Moore.
Hermeneutics explores some major approaches to truth and knowing in contemporary theology. It addresses the interpretation of texts, the location of the knower, and the relationship between epistemology, practice and Christian spirituality. It draws on the history of hermeneutics, as well as contemporary work in post-liberal theology, liberation and virtue epistemology, and mystical theology. The subject is designed to undergird advanced theological studies, by equipping students with the capacity to reflect critically on questions of truth and knowing in theological inquiry.
