Course Description:
This course explores the diverse expressions of Christian spirituality. Students will discuss the definitions given to the term "spirituality" and consider methodological issues in the academic study of spirituality whether these are historical, anthropological or theological in approach. Emphasis is placed on a wide reading in the Christian tradition of both primary and secondary literature in order to assist the student in grasping the integral link between the lived faith of Christians and the theological articulation of that faith. Spiritualities will be seen in the context of their historical emergence, the unique contributions each makes to Christianity, and the link they demonstrate between spiritual life and theological insight. Prerequisite: THEO 101 (or 102 and 103)
