Description

AT 1 — INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY: EXPLORING THE CLASSIC TEXTS AND PRACTICES

In this foundational course, the classical texts 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 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 Simone Weil. There will also be frequent reference to the expression of spirituality through the arts of poetry, visual art, and music.
