Theology was best described fro me by John Macquarrie:

'Theology may defined as the study which, through participation in and reflection upon a religious faith, seeks to express the content of this faith in the clearest and most coherent language available.'

Now it might be argued that this is not, or never has been done successfully. Is this the kind of thing that should be studied at a university. One can study and analyse the attempts, the effects of those attempts and the historical context in which those attempts are/have been were made. Which I think is the sort of thing that happens here.
