ABOUT THE COURSE
Since early Christian times, men and women have responded to God’s call for an intimate relationship with him. They have responded in prayer and action, and have explored the heights of asceticism and contemplation. At the same time, they had a great impact on society and culture, as they responded to Jesus’ call to discipleship. This course will explore some of the main writings and characters of Christian Spirituality, especially from the time of the Fathers to the Renaissance.
