This postgraduate module explores essential aspects that characterise and define Orthodox spirituality – the interconnections between liturgical life and communitarian/societal understanding. It will cover ways in which Orthodox theology is implicitly communitarian (and therefore pastoral), theology as holistic: inseparable connection between the liturgical and sacramental life, social action and commitment, and the concept of theosis as ‘engine’ and ultimate goal of Orthodox theology and spirituality, as well as monasticism, prayer, inner life, the sacrament of the brother, Catholicity and Life according to Holy Trinity.
