AT 332 Wandering for the Love of God: Early Medieval Spirituality

from 600.00

Wandering—whether in the form of exploration, travel, or for God’s sake—was an early medieval (CE 600-1000) reality. Our course will honor that: we will wander through prayers, meditations, Saint’s Lives, sermons, carvings, drawings, poems, and historical writings from the early Middle Ages. It was a creative era (the letters you are reading right now were invented by early medieval monks), dynamic (this was the era when the bold and powerful Christus Victor dominated the Christian imagination and theology), and yet prayerful (this was the age when the monastery was the healthiest place you could find, and when the life of meditation and prayer was actively sought by everyone from cowherds to Queens). Each student will choose a special road to explore, read, look and pray his or her way along that road with the guidance of the professor.

The Rev. Dr. Clair McPherson.  3 credits or Audit.
