What is Theology?
Sep 04, 2020 Season 1 Episode 10
Brandon Harvey

This podcast episode examines the study of theology as it relates to Divine Revelation, Scripture, Prayer, the Sacred Liturgy, and the Magisterium.

A quote from the Catechism:

"The Fathers of the Church distinguish between theology (theologia) and economy (oikonomia). "Theology" refers to the mystery of God's inmost life within the Blessed Trinity and "economy" to all the works by which God reveals himself and communicates his life. Through the oikonomia the theologia is revealed to us; but conversely, the theologia illuminates the whole oikonomia. God's works reveal who he is in himself; the mystery of his inmost being enlightens our understanding of all his works. So it is, analogously, among human persons. A person discloses himself in his actions, and the better we know a person, the better we understand his actions." -CCC 236
