CS212 : Ancient Wisdom for Everyday Spirituality: Post-Reformation to Modern Era (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : 2020-2021
About this course
Since Pentecost, the Spirit of God has been at work in the Church, teaching Christians His Word, leading them in paths less travelled and enabling them to grow and mature in Christ. While partaking in the one and the same Spirit of Christ, Christians have often experienced the teachings and guidance of God in diverse ways. This course will familiarise students with the socio- cultural, philosophical, theological, and spiritual context and teachings of every spiritual classic that the class will read.
As a continuation of CS211, we will work through the classic spiritual writings exploring various themes of Christian spirituality from the magisterial Reformers onwards. The objective of this course, then, is to survey the history of Christian spirituality across the second millennium of the church, looking in particular at the diverse writings and experience of Christian men and women of that era. Drawing on their spiritual insights, we trust that this ancient wisdom may still be used by God to guide us in our everyday spirituality.
