This subject examines the human person in later life from the perspective of Christian theology. Students will reflect critically upon human personhood in later life, taking into account biblical perspectives; Christian theological and other religious traditions; and dialogue with contemporary secular accounts. It explores the older person's relationship to concepts such as forgiveness and reconciliation in personal relationships; critical self-reflection and self-transcendence; finding peace in loss; and cognisance of mortality. A range of contemporary ethical issues in later life that arise from the dignity of the human person will also be examined.
