THEO 531 Theology of the Holy Spirit and the Spiritual Life


Theology of the spiritual life is being excitingly regrounded in a revived interest in the doctrine of the Holy Spirit (Pneumatology), itself part of a revival of Trinitarian theology. This course allows students to explore these interesting developments through consideration of important texts and sharing personal and pastoral experience. Both lecture and seminar time with student presentations are envisioned during the class time slot. For credit, a final paper of some 20 pages is required, on a topic of the student’s choosing in consultation with the professor. A previous course in theology is a prerequisite.
