Free Course: "The Meaning of Conscience in a Multi-(and No-)Faith World" with Dr. Matthew Pereira

What does it mean to act according to one’s conscience, especially in relation to recognizing the moral authority of Church teachings? This class will explore the meaning of conscience and identify ways in which the faithful, according to the Church, can—and cannot—disagree on moral matters. As part of the discussion, we’ll look at how individual conscience functions in a morally pluralistic and multi-faith world.

About the Instructor
Rev. Matthew J. Pereira, Ph.D. is a Postdocotral Faculty Fellow in Theological Studies at LMU, and specializes in early Christianity. His primary research interest is in the patterns of theological discourse at the borderlands of late antiquity, where the translation, transmission, and reinterpretation of canonical texts in conversation with other texts (i.e., intertextuality), engendered hybrid theological commitments that transgressed the cultural and linguistic borders of the Latin West and Greek East traditions. Dr. Pereira serves a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA).
