Creation, Gospel and Responsibility in Theological Ethics
Prof. Fulvio Ferrario

The course proposes an analysis of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Ethics, considered as a document of the history of thought, but also as a relevant contribution to a discussion that continues. The lessons presuppose the prior reading of the Bonhoefferian pages indicated from time to time. The detailed bibliography will be suggested during the lessons. As an introduction, we indicate F. Ferrario, The Ethics of Bonhoeffer,
Claudiana, Turin, 2018.
