Christianity literature II/CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 2

Department/subject Faculty of Theology theology department
Teacher/lecturer name Katayama haruhi
The holding year 2015
Date First semester

Through analysis of literary work brought up in the West and Japanese Christian traditions, we feel the point of contact of theology and literature, and there is that we get wider Christian culture and faith understanding for the purpose of this lecture. In the latter period, we take up "hope and faith, silence of God, problem of evil" as theme and, by technique of comparative literature, study mainly on work of Shusaku Endo and Ionesco and Pascal.
