a person who is an expert on theology
More in detail on theology: the study of religious faith, practice, and experience : the study of God and God’s relation to the world.
I’ve come across this word in the reading excerpt “Univers Strikes Back”. This word can be found in the sentence “No longer satisfied by the cult of cultures, philosophers, theologians, journalists, and artists around the world are recovering the universal ideas embedded in their particular religious, national, or communal orientations…”. From learning who the theologians were, I understand that in the previous sentence they’re a group of people that have been placed in their own category of great minds. To me I think the sentence is referring to The Renaissance era. The Renaissance was an era of which these amazing thinkers came about and expressed their ideas to the world. The sentence is exclaiming that the world no longer has a great influence from these amazing thinkers.
