This course is designed to teach students the Scriptural basis for the major Marian doctrines of the Catholic Church. These doctrines include the Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, and Assumption into Heaven, as well as the Blessed Mother’s intercessory power. This course emphasizes the Blessed Mother’s role in salvation history as the New Eve, the Ark of the New Covenant, and the New Davidic Queen, as described by Old Testament typology and the Gospel accounts of the Blessed Mother.
