Theology & the Living Tradition 

Theology is a faithful listening to and systematic, methodical articulation of the message of the Word of God revealed by deeds and words. This revelation began in Israel, culminated in Jesus Christ, himself both the mediator and sum total of Revelation, and, through him, was transmitted in the living tradition of the Church.  

Engage in the Life of the Church

The Department of Theology continually involves itself in academic programs and endeavors aimed at enriching the life of both the University community as well as the Church. Some of the current programs and past projects include:

  • Seminar on the Development of Early Catholic Christianity Co-founded by UD theology professor Fr. David Balas, this ecumenical seminar meets four times a year and offers papers primarily on first and second century Christianity.
  • International Bible Commentary Dr. William Farmer, a research scholar at UD, guided the publication of this one volume, Catholic, ecumenical commentary. Scholars from six continents contributed to this publication, which has recently been translated into Spanish and Dutch and will soon be translated into Italian, French, German, and Russian.
  • Conference on Anti-Judaism in the Gospels Organized by UD's theology department, this national conference brought Jewish and Christian scholars to the university for an interfaith discussion on the question of the portrayal of Judaism in the Gospels.
  • Conference on the Eucharist Gathering speakers from all over the country, the University of Dallas theology department hosted this ecumenical scholars' conference to discuss the notion of sacrifice in the Eucharist.
