A Video Series on the Theology of the Body
On September 5, 1979, St. Pope John Paul II began a series of Wednesday audiences that became a catechesis on the theology of the body. The theology of the body represents a return to the fundamental, integral vision of man as being made in the image and likeness of God, the only creature God created for his own sake. The theology of the body is, therefore, a striking defense of the human person in the face of the many reductionistic theories and tendencies of the modern age. The theology of the body is the most creative approach to the defense of Catholic moral teachings in the domain of sex and marriage, combining insights from Catholic theology, theologians, and philosophers from many fields of study, including Thomisim, phenomenology, existentialism and dialogue with psychoanalysis.
In this video series, we work through all 133 Wednesday audiences. That is right, a video for every audience, within which we give commentary, explain concepts and terminology, with the goal of helping the reader make his way through this amazing and difficult text. We have also provided the PowerPoint slides used in the videos.
Our first video will be released Sept. 5 of this year. Afterwards, videos will be released on Mondays and Fridays every week. If you want immediate access to the videos, subscribe to our Patreon! Our Patreons get early access to every video!
