The Nature of Contemporary Spirituality
- Course Dates: Mon 18 January, 2:00 pm to Thu 21 January, 2:00 pm
An introduction to the nature of Spirituality in the Christian tradition from the nineteenth century to the present day.
Students will investigate the proliferation of Christian spiritualities in this period and consider the impact of modernism, postmodernity, feminism and political theology on contemporary conceptions of Christian Spirituality. Students will also investigate the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of academic responses to Christian Spirituality (in relation to literature, psychology, film etc), and the extent to which they extend the taxonomy of the discipline.
Five places are set aside for those not enrolled on the degree programme who may book on this module as an auditor. Participation may be online or onsite (subject to government guidance at the time).
