This postgraduate module aims to introduce students to some of the major figures and themes in Christian spirituality across many ecumenical traditions (from the spirituality of the Early Church, to early monastic expressions, the Late Middle Ages, the early modernity of nineteenth century, to the present day). Students will explore the ways in which an awareness and re-appropriation of past expressions in Christian spirituality can lead to fresh and meaningful Christian experiences today.
