AT1: INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY: EXPLORING THE CLASSIC TEXTS AND PRACTICES

Two-Week Intensive.

An exploration of the classical texts of Christian spirituality, with experience of meditation and prayer based on the readings. The aim is to integrate theory and praxis as we pursue both critical thought and spiritual growth. Lectures and discussions incorporate biblical, historical and theological perspectives. Readings include integral works by such Christian writers as Ignatius of Antioch, Irenaeus, the Cappadocians, the Latin Fathers and Mothers, the Desert Dwellers, medieval mystics and teachers including Ignatius of Loyola and Teresa of Avila, and modern searchers including Simone Weil. The pedagogy includes frequent reference to the expression of spirituality through poetry, visual art, and music.
