Aspects of Doctoral Research at the Maryvale International Catholic Institute (Volume Four)
This collection of extracts from students who successfully defended their doctoral thesis highlights the breadth of research in Catholic Studies. The fourth book in a series of volumes, it shines new light on age old issues and, in many ways, offers solutions to and opportunities for dialogue with the contemporary world. These essays, from the students of Maryvale International Catholic Institute, with doctorates accredited by Liverpool Hope University, truly reflect the philosophy underpinning academic life at Maryvale, that of St. John Henry Newman. In essence, his vision for education involves an extension of knowledge, a cultivation of reason, an insight into the “relation of truth to truth”, learning to view things as they are and understanding “how faith and reason stand to each other”. These students have achieved that. This volume presents work covering the areas of moral theology, ethics, bioethics, textual analysis, theology, philosophy, history and literature, crossing in places, into the territory of pastoral theology, evangelisation and catechesis.
