Art, Belief and Spirituality

  • Course Dates: Mon 10 May, 2:00 pm to Thu 13 May, 2:00 pm

This module explores the relationship between the arts, belief and Christian Spirituality.

 Throughout this module, ‘the arts’ will be broadly construed to include visual art (painting, sculpture, craft, film making etc.), music, and literature. We’ll examine the ways in which art influences spirituality and vice versa with lots of opportunity for theological reflection.

Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
