Theology Bridging Traditions, Cultures and Disciplines

The Theology Department at Marquette University seeks to bridge traditions, cultures and disciplines from the perspective of a Catholic and Jesuit University rooted in its own tradition, but in dialogue with other Christian communities and religious faiths. The task of theology today is to bring a faith perspective grounded in the great tradition of the Gospel into dialogue with our contemporary world. This requires both a deep knowledge of the Gospel and the tradition that has thought deeply on that message as well as a keen awareness of the world in which we live.
