About the Modern & Post-Modern Perspectives on Christian Spirituality (2024) course
This course is an excellent introduction to the forms and types of spirituality in the Christian tradition from the Reformations to the present day.
We will cover movements in Christian Spirituality in (and beyond) modernity as well as new scholarly approaches to studying such movements. Starting in the period after the
Reformations, students will investigate the nature of Christian spiritualities in this period and consider the impact of modernism, postmodernism, feminism, and political theology on
contemporary perceptions of Christian spirituality. Students will also investigate the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of academic engagement with Christian Spirituality.
This module will also touch on the relationship between Christian and atheist spiritualities.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
This course would made an excellent addition to a study break, retreat or sabbatical in the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral Close, where residential participants enjoy full board, access to the library and to the pattern of liturgy at Salisbury Cathedral.
Whether it’s cultural events, sightseeing (Stonehenge is nearby for example) or shopping — there’s plenty to do if you’d like to extend your stay the weekend before and after the course. For ideas, visit Salisbury Cathedral Close attraction websites to see what’s on Sarum’s doorstep. Visit the Wiltshire Creative website to view events at nearby Salisbury Playhouse and the Salisbury Arts Centre. The Experience Salisbury website has an excellent city-wide listing of forthcoming events around the city.
