Description: 

This course will explore Orthodox spiritual theology from both thematic and historical perspectives, drawing on the principal writings that have contributed to its development over the centuries. From a consideration of the goal of Orthodox spirituality as union with God or deification (theosis ), the course will examine the contribution of the Old and New Testament; the experience of early Church; monasticism; ancient philosophy; liturgical and sacramental elements; the mystical and contemplative aspects; and patristic theology.
