Western Christian Mysticism

  • Course Dates: Mon 21 November 2022 to Thu 24 November 2022

This module gives students an overview of the historical development of the Western Christian Mystical tradition.

 The course aims to enable students to identify and analyse key historical figures and movements within that tradition, as well as contemporary scholarly debates around Christian Mysticism. Students will be expected to examine both apophatic and cataphatic strands of Western Mysticism. Aspects of the English strand of the mystical tradition will be explored as well as that of Continental mystics.

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).
