AT1 Intro to Christian Spirituality

AT1 Intro to Christian Spirituality

from 600.00

In this foundational course, the classical texts and tools of Christian spirituality are explored, with lectures and discussions grounded in biblical, historical and theological perspectives, and experiences in meditation and prayer based on the readings. Integrating theory and praxis, both critical thought and spiritual growth are pursued. The syllabus includes integral works— in short selections—  by such Christian writers as Ignatius of Antioch, Irenaeus, the Cappadocians, the Latin Fathers (and Mothers) and the Desert Dwellers, the medieval mystics and teachers, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, through to modern searchers such as T. S. Eliot. There will also be frequent reference to the expression of spirituality through the arts of poetry, visual art, and music.
