Contemporary Christian Spirituality
- Course Dates: Mon 23 May 2016, 2:00 pm to Thu 26 May 2016, 5:00 pm
This module will enable students to critically evaluate relationships between Christian Spirituality and non-Christian spiritualities.
Students will be introduced to the important role that Platonic and other philosophical traditions within antiquity played in shaping Christian Spirituality and explore ways in which non-Christian traditions continue to re-shape and challenge classical notions of Christian Spirituality in three contemporary settings.
Students will also examine the subjective turn and the challenge presented by New Age and other contrasting spiritualities. The module will also allow students to reflect on the import of inter-religious dialogue for contemporary conceptions of spirituality in general and Christian Spirituality in particular.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
