Humanities

The Humanities play a significant and supportive role in the study of theology.

At CTC we focus on those disciplines that directly assist the theological task.

Studying the Bible in its original languages of Hebrew and Greek can greatly enrich a student’s understanding of the biblical foundations of theology.

Such tasks as reading the text in the language of composition, undertaking textual research, and deciding critically on the most appropriate English version of an expression can be stimulating and enriching. The student comes to a greater appreciation of sacred scripture as the inspired Word of God.

The study of Latin enables the student to come to a more confident understanding of significant Church texts, from the works of Church fathers such as Augustine, to the documents of the Second Vatican Council and more recent Church pronouncements.
