The second year of theology deepens the development of the intelligence of faith, through the great Christological councils, concerning the identity of Jesus, recognized as Christ, Son of God, Word and God’s revelation.
There are also courses on the Bible, mainly on the Prophets - who understand themselves as inspired by God and claim that what they say is word of God. This is obvious from the very frequent formula they use « Thus speaks the Lord » - and on Wisdom Literature keeping in mind the importance of how Wisdom movements were universal in the ancient world and, from a certain perspective, have influenced or even were the basis or the models of biblical movements.
In philosophy, students will have a course on Metaphysics, a discipline with long standing history, and that has been understood in different ways. Traditionally, it is considered as the most general and fundamental discipline of all other disciplines. Metaphysics or the Philosophy of Being as Being seeks to answer questions about existence. Another course will be an introduction to Thomas Aquinas, which will enable the student to explore his mind and to learn from Thomas Aquinas. The Dominican motto contemplata aliis tradere, which means “contemplate and hand over to others” is from Thomas, and this motto summarizes the aims of the course.
