History of Christianity III (1648-present)

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2012 · Online Course

This introductory course examines the history of Christianity from the Peace of Westphalia (1648) to the end of the twentieth century. As will be demonstrated throughout the course, the major catalyst for change has been, and continues to be, the constant tension between the inherently static nature of the historic Church and the forces of modernity. Throughout the course we will see how modern culture, which includes but is not limited to, contemporary politics, philosophy, literature, and painting, exercised an overwhelming influence on the development of eighteenth-century, nineteenth-century, and twentieth-century Christianity. Two short research summaries submitted online (40%), participation (20%), final exam submitted online (40%)

Liturgy in the Middle Ages

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The scope of what was understood as 'liturgy' in the middle ages went far beyond the bare words used in the Mass, daily prayer and baptism and descriptions of how the services were performed. It included knowing the names and functions of the grades of ordained clergy (which varied from place to place) and their dress, the design of churches, their furnishing and consecration, the calendar of the liturgical year and of course the nature of the music which accompanied the liturgy. Teaching methods: lectures, DVDs of manuscripts, video, musical recordings.

Reconsidering Kant's Aesthetics

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Until recently, it was customary to regard Kant as the thinker who gave definitive form to the notion of aesthetic judgment and who succeeded in explaining why aesthetic experience is something essentially distinct from other kinds of experience. The postmodern rejection of the practice of aesthetic theory, however, has done much to undermine Kant's position vis-a-vis the arts. This course aims to re-examine Kant's aesthetic theory from the vantage point of the art theoretical literature that preceded it. In an effort to better understand Kant's contribution to the history of thought about art, it will seek to contextualize such "Kantian" themes as judgment, taste, genius, beauty, sublimity and purposiveness. It will also consider to what degree our understanding of Kant has been shaped by later modernist assumptions about the character of his contribution.

Mediaeval Liturgical Commentaries

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Most people, when the subject of mediaeval liturgy is mentioned, think of the old service books which have the words spoken (sacramentaries, lectionaries, missals, breviaries) and descriptions of the action (ordos). There is another class of book entirely, the liturgical commentaries, which goes through the public services, explaining the elements they contain. They were also interested in the ministers of the liturgy, their orders and dress, in the structure of church and altar, in the calendar (temporal and sanctoral), and of course in the vexed question of how a priest computed the date of Easter (no diocesan journals in those days). Teaching methods: shared reading of 5 commentaries with explanations by the instructor.

The Book of Common Prayer

Offered in Winter 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

After the Bible, the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), in its various revisions, is the most important foundational text of Anglican Christianity.  Often praised for its literary beauty and influence, it has nevertheless become unfamiliar – or even offensive – to Anglicans who worship mainly with new liturgies produced in recent decades.  This course will explore the sources and historical development of the Prayer Book tradition from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, the BCP’s importance in the history of doctrinal controversy and Anglican identity, and how the BCP’s liturgies have been variously received and interpreted over time, including critiques by modern liturgical scholarship.  Major themes: the Bible and worship; liturgical language; the sacraments; sin and repentance; individual and community; ecclesiology and ecumenism; the BDP and “churchmanship”.

Prerequisite: History of Christianity 2 or equivalent.
