RST 206 - Spirituality


An exploration of contemporary Christian spirituality as the lived experience of faith - the on-going life-project of person integration and self-transcendence - offering theological, historical, cultural, psychological and interfaith contexts for understanding its manifold expressions. The course will survey select trends and issues in contemporary Catholic spirituality signaled by Vatican Council II such as the post-modern quest for meaning; the impact on personal self-understanding of contemporary psychology and cosmology; the challenge of social and ecological commitment; the variety of contemplative resources available for the development of the inner self; the way of Gospel conversion and sacramentality; and the relevance of the Catholic vocation - its vision, values, and practice virtues - for the life of the self and of the world.
