The Nature of Contemporary Spirituality

Mon 21 January 2019, 2:00 pm to Thu 24 January 2019, 2:00 pm

An introduction to the nature of Spirituality in the Christian tradition from the nineteenth century to the present day.

Students will investigate the proliferation of Christian spiritualities in this period and consider the impact of modernism, postmodernity, feminism and political theology on contemporary conceptions of Christian Spirituality. Students will also investigate the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of academic responses to Christian Spirituality (in relation to literature, psychology, film etc), and the extent to which they extend the taxonomy of the discipline.

Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
