SEM 42 - Practical Theology/Homiletics
From 20th April to 15th June 2020
By Emmanuel Dumont
Course code: SEM 42Professor: Emmanuel Dumont
Homiletics has its schools, its movements. One of the main ones, at the end of the XXth century was called “new homiletics”. In the 60’s, some pastors adopted the new hermeneutics, this new relation to the Bible and the World, to face the new crisis of authority of the Church. This renewal brought new insight to pastors: “turn to the hearer”, “narrative plot”, “story telling”, experience, sharing of the authority, organic form… This seminar will be the occasion for students to read some important texts of this school and to help them build their own thought on this subject.
