Encounter four of the most remarkable women in the history of Christianity. Since 1970, the Roman Catholic Church has named four women "Doctors of the Church": Teresa of ℓvila, Catherine of Siena, Thřs̈e of Lisieux, and Hildegard of Bingen. Despite living in different countries, centuries, and cultural contexts, these saints continue to inspire us with their wisdom and faith. Now, you can understand each woman's powerful theology, letting her spirituality guide your own life. As you explore the historical context that gave rise to their ideas, you will learn how to retrieve aspects of their theological thought in a critical and relevant way today. In these 12 lectures, you will see how their unique voices illustrate models of holy, complex, intelligent, and passionate Christians. You will explore Hildegard of Bingen's theology of the Holy Spirit, Catherine of Siena's theology of Incarnation, Teresa of ℓvila's doctrine of the human person, and Thřs̈e of Lisieux's theology of the cross. By joining these women, you will discover how their wisdom integrates theology and spirituality; doctrine and mysticism; contemplation and action; head and heart; theory and everyday life. And, as these Doctors of the Church will show you, the Church needs theology done by women more than ever. Experience the depth and breadth of the Christian theological tradition with Hildegard, Catherine, Teresa, and Thřs̈e.
