What is Hamartiology?

Hamartiology is simply put, the study of sin.  Hamartia is a Greek word meaning “missing the mark” and coupled with the word logia or “discourse,” we get the word for studying sin.

In general, Hamartiology is a division of systematic theology, so when you are looking for courses on Hamartiology you would probably find it in courses that fall under the “systematics” genre in theology.
