CH 138 Ideas and Icons: Byzantine Spirituality

from 600.00

Ever since the Apostles brought the Good News from Palestine to Syria and Antioch, the Eastern Christian Church has developed a distinctive, creative theological culture. Recent ecumenical awareness, and theological exploration of the Greek teachers from Origen to John Zizioulas, have brought that culture of the western Church in newly intentional ways. This course will explore the classical age of Orthodox Spirituality, from the foundation of Constantinople in the 4th century to it fall in the 15th. The great Orthodox teachers such as Gregory Palamas, Maximos the Confessor, John and Damascus, and the Cappadocians will be studied in depth.

The Rev. Dr. Clair McPherson and Dr. Alina Feld.  3 credits.
