BIB 360 Christian Spirituality: History, Theology and Practice


In this course we will be exploring the history, theology and practices that have shaped Christian Spirituality. Time will be spent reading from classics in Christian spirituality that epitomize the great diversity and depth of the tradition (East and West), and then discussing potential insights and possible challenges such works represent. Additionally, the course will also seek to provide reflection on key theological ideas that should govern, chasten, and encourage Christian growth in grace in truth. Significant time will be spent in discussion not only about what is being read, but also reflecting on “various ‘practices’” (e.g. times of silence, self-examination, etc.) that will be done by students. As part of the course, a retreat of silence and solitude (normally at a monastery or similar setting), led by the instructor, will take place. Prerequisite(s): BIB 111  and BIB 142  or permission of instructor. 3 hour(s).
