The Systematic Theologies guide section provides a quick way to discover what your systematic theologies have to say on a particular theological topic. The Systematic Theologies guide section appears in the Theology Guide, can be added to a new custom guide, or opened as a standalone guide.
Note: In Verbum, the categories of Topic and Theological Topic are distinct. Topic refers to a set of general topics on a wide range of subjects.
- Topics appear in the Topic Guide, and can be used in searches.
- Theological Topics are a distinct set of topics based on the categorization within the Lexham Survey of Theology. They appear in the Theology Guide, as well as several theologically-oriented guide sections (including the Systematic Theology guide section).
- Click Guides, then begin typing Systematic Theologies in the Guides menu search box.
- Select the Systematic Theologies guide section in the Theology Guides category when it appears. It will open in a new panel.
- Enter the topic you want to study in the search box and press Enter.
