In the light of Vatican II, this unit considers Moral Theology as a theological science. It provides a survey of the history of moral theology, examines the sources of moral knowledge for the Christian, explores the interrelationships between moral theology, scripture, Christology, ecclesiology and Christian anthropology. On the basis of such understanding this unit examines moral conscience in the Catholic tradition. Other topics such as Sin, Conversion, Liturgical prayer and the concept of Discipleship are considered within the context of Christian moral life.
