Offered in Summer 2011  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course explores Orthodox spiritual and pastoral guidance, from the 2nd C. to the 14th, from both thematic and historical perspectives, beginning with consideration of the goal of Orthodox spirituality as union with God (theosis). The course will then examine the contributions of the early Church, monasticism, ancient philosophy, liturgical poetry, mysticism, patristic theology, and the major themes of ascetic theology. As well, it will consider preaching, catechesis, hagiography, and extra-liturgical devotions (e.g. pilgrimage, etc). The course will emphasize readings of the great classic texts to the 14th century.
