Evaluation description

Examination type: written paper (60%), class participation (40%)

When: evaluation outside normal examination period. Two printed copies of the paper are to be delivered to the Registrar by November 2024.

Explanation: Participants present their findings in class and have the chance to revise their material, based on class discussion and feedback from the instructor, before submitting a graduate research paper of 3,500-4,000 words, equivalent to 15-20 pages of text including footnotes and in addition a bibliography, following the KU Leuven norms.

Criteria for evaluation:

Both the regular in class presentations by the students of their ongoing research and the final paper are assessed based on the following:
i.  logical organisation of the material and its clear presentation,
ii.  accuracy of information and analysis,
iii.  consistency in style of notes and bibliography,
iv.  sources preferably in their original languages,
v.  theological accuracy

Second opportunity to sit the exam: Because this is an intensive summer course, the opportunity for a second exam is by appointment and depends upon the availability of the instructor.


Note: Students must be over 18 years of age.

This course is not designed to be taken simultaneously with any other course, such as the Latin programme offered at the same time. Students will need ample time outside of class sessions to conduct their own independent research and writing of a master’s level seminar paper with the guidance of the professor.

The instructor will arrange with the students to be available regularly for some time in the Study Centre and is also available by appointment.

This course fulfils IL Certificate in Liturgy programme requirement for a seminar



Non-residential day students are welcome.

Limited accommodation is available through Ealing Abbey house for guests or other religious houses or nearby.
