Denver, December 3, 2018 – The Augustine Institute is delighted to announce the launch of a new program in Sacred Scripture next fall! The degree of Master of Arts in Sacred Scripture will provide students a rigorous program of study of biblical texts guided by the light of Catholic Tradition. This program forms students interested in pursuing academic goals in Catholic theology. The curriculum implements the vision for biblical studies envisioned by the Second Vatican Council, recognizing both the divine and human dimensions of the Inspired Word. Students are trained in the literary and historical tools necessary for interpreting the biblical texts in their original settings, with special emphasis on learning biblical Greek, and explore the theological dimensions of the text, recognizing that “the study of the ‘sacred page’” is “the very soul of sacred theology” (Dei Verbum § 24).
