About the Texts and the Christian Tradition (2022) course
This courses is a deep exploration of a particular text as it relates to the Christian Tradition.
In 2022, the text we will examine will be Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison.
The selected text changes each iteration of the module. It is 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).
This course is an opportunity to 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.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
