ABOUT THE COURSE
In his preface to the text for this course, Robert Egan asks the question, what is the relationship between the mystical and the political dimensions of religious existence? In this course, you will explore theoretical and practical perspectives on the subject through the lens of St. Teresa of Avila, Ignatian spirituality of service, the religious tradition of African-American women, and contemporary social justice figures.
