THRS1103 - Exploring Catholic Theology: Home

Find course-specific library resources, including peer-reviewed articles, ebooks, and more.

General Considerations for your research

Special attention should be given to the date of publication of resources you select for your papers. Catholic Theology underwent tremendous changes in 1965 with the Second Vatican Council. As a result, materials published before 1965 represent an historic view of Catholic theology. Materials published after 1965 reflect current Catholic theology. For your research paper on "Saints and Exemplary Catholic Figures," a book or article published prior to 1965 may impact discussions regarding an individual's contribution to Christian theology.
