Liturgy and Culture
- Course Dates: Mon 4 May 2020, 2:00 pm to Thu 7 May 2020, 2:00 pm
This module will investigate the relationship between liturgy and its changing cultural contexts.
This is a topic that has become increasingly important for churches as they reassess their relationship to society and for liturgical studies as churches and scholars recognise the significance of cultural context for liturgical development.
The module will introduce students to different ways of understanding the relationship between culture and liturgy, and the implications and theological assumptions of each approach. Reflection on these issues will be concerning liturgical examples and policy documents of the church and their critics. Students will be encouraged to reflect critically on the implications of the material discussed for their liturgical context.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor. Click the link for additional information concerning auditing courses.
