  • We have called this unit: POST HOC, ERGO PROPTER HOC. This is a Latin phrase which means “after this, therefore because of this”. Really what it’s saying is that we often say that things happen because of something that happened before. That’s a bit complicated but we have applied that things happen because of something that happened before. That’s a bit complicated but we have applied that idea to this study of beliefs.
  • We come to understand and appreciate our beliefs as Christians – and Catholics more explicitly – from our reading, and prayerful reflection on our scriptures.
  • Catholics more explicitly – from our reading, and prayerful reflection on our scriptures.
  • Our unit last term gave us something of a background to our scriptures – now it’s our turn to take this further to get a bit of an understanding of some elements of our beliefs as Christians.
  • We’re going to break this into four manageable bits; each of these will have a different focus but hopefully will help in our exploration of this topic. So what are we going to look at in this unit?
  • The first section is called: God’s Revelation – that is, looking at how God has revealed himself to us. God started by revealing himself to the people of Israel and we see this more fully expressed through the person of Jesus.
  • The second section focuses on God in the world. Each of us experiences the world in different ways. So as a consequence we each experience God through his creation in different ways. We’re going to try to explore how some of these revelations have been expressed through the language of the scriptures.
  • The third section begins to explore the four other World Religions: Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism. We have already been looking at Judaism and Christianity. Now we want to take a look at the other World Religions and explore the each tradition’s understanding of the idea of God.
  • We will finish with a consideration of the founding figures and their importance within each of their own traditions.
