Curricula: Mariology

This Curricula: Mariology provides an outline of the major aspects of the Church's understanding of The Blessed Virgin Mary. Mariology, or the doctrine of the Mother of God, cannot be separated either from the person or from the work of the Redeemer and therefore has the deepest connection with both Christology and Soteriology. Here we examine not only her special role in the Incarnation, but also subsequent developments in the Church's understanding.

NOTE: This is not an article from the Catholic Encyclopedia. It is provided here for the benefit of those interested in pursuing additional studies in this area.
