Honors Theology 10 - Original

Mass, the Sacraments & Prayer and Church History I

Grade Ten Theology is a two-part course. The first semester of the course covers Mass, the Sacraments and Prayer and the second semester covers Church History I. The semesters may be taught in any order. The first semester of the course will teach the student the origin of the seven Sacraments, the development in the Church's understanding of them, and their absolute necessity in the Christian life. The student will also be exposed to the Church's rich tradition of prayer. The second half of the course, Church History I, the student will learn the development of the Church from the close of the Apostolic age to the conversion of the Roman emperor Constantine: approximately 90 to 325 A.D.

Course Description

This course will enable the student to understand in detail the nature of the Sacraments he is receiving, and be able to defend the Catholic understanding of each Sacrament against detractors; deepen the student's appreciation of the Mass and of the Sacraments, so as to make reception of the Sacraments more fruitful; gain exposure to the Church's treasury of prayers and spiritual practices, so as to develop an appreciation for the Church's tradition and a zealousness to serve God; study the Word of God as it moved from the Apostles through the Apostolic Fathers to the Fathers of the Church; become familiar with the early Fathers and their works, particularly as they contributed to the unfolding of Catholic Doctrine and Sacred Tradition; and apply Christian principles faithfully as a result of studying the examples and seeking the intercession of saints of the period.

Course Expectations

Students taking this course for Kolbe Core (OK) credit will have four major assignments each semester.  Two of those four assignments will be paper topic essays, and the other 2 may also be essays, but could instead include other types of creative projects, oral presentations, or other appropriate assignments pertinent to the course.  Additionally, core students should also expect to have daily reading, minor weekly written assignments, and exams as assigned by their parent. 

All requirements are assigned and graded by the parent - Enhanced Evaluation Service is available for additional grading assistance.
