This book is an introduction to Catholic theological ethics through the lens of its historical development from the beginning of the church until today.
Starting with the Scriptures, and in particular the New Testament, the author looks at the inspiration and foundational values and virtues that emerge from its moral instruction.
The second millennium begins with the founding of religious orders and universities. These two movements produce scholasticism, which provides an intellectual foundation and vocabulary for the future of theological ethics.
