Texts and the Christian Tradition
- Course Dates: Mon 4 July 2022 to Thu 7 July 2022
This module will focus on a deep exploration of a particular text as it relates to the Christian Tradition.
The text will be either a particular biblical text(s) (e.g. The Gospel of Mark, The Sermon on the Mount, or the Genesis matriarchal narratives) and/or a classic text from the Christian spiritual tradition (e.g. The Rule of St Benedict, The Interior Castle, The Cloud of Unknowing), with a different text chosen for each iteration of the module.
Students will critically engage with the text using particular lenses with enable deeper consideration of its meaning, significance, impact and longevity for the Christian spiritual tradition, its adherents, and/or the wider cultural context.
Those not enroled in postgraduate study may join the module as an auditor.
