ID217 : Theology of Food I - Eat, Drink and be Merry (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : AY 2019-2020 Sem 1
About this courseEating is one of the most profound ways by which we relate to each other, to the created world, and to God. In this course we will explore, within the framework of Christian theology, some of the biological, ecological, psychological, aesthetic, spiritual, agricultural, historical, economic, and ethical aspects of what, why, and how we eat. Through readings, course lectures, excursions and discussions we shall explore a thoughtful Christian engagement on the dimensions of the production, distribution, preparation, and consumption of food. We will spend time engaging these topics in a context of worshipping, feasting, fasting, and cooking together.
