Some theologians consider reason to be the natural ally of faith, while others think that reason is a tool of the devil. The reality is that humans are equipped with reason in the human tendency is to employ that reason. Thus, many people in the history of the Church have attempted to describe the relationship between faith and reason. This has been done to undergird such diverse tasks as developing proofs for the existence of God, on the one hand, or finding a way to force a complete separation of faith and reason, on the other hand. This course facilitates an inquiry into various avenues for describing and defining the challenging relationship between faith and reason.
