Foundations and Forms of Christian Spirituality

  • Course Dates: Mon 4 October to Thu 7 October

The module will introduce students to the roots and types of spirituality in the Christian tradition until the Reformation.

It will explore 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 encourage to apply a range of interpretative methods to the texts they are introduced to.
