Foundations and Forms of Christian Spirituality
- Course Dates: Mon 2 October, 2:00 pm to Thu 5 October, 2:00 pm
This module will introduce students to the nature of Spirituality in the Christian tradition until the end of the eighteenth century.
It will look at a number of spiritual traditions within Christianity and enable students to place them in their historical and philosophical contexts. Students will become aware of the problems we face in matters of interpretation when dealing with classical spiritual texts and will be encouraged to apply a range of interpretative methods to the texts they are introduced to.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
