This course is an examination of the Gospels' passion narratives and as they have stirred theological imaginations through the centuries. The first part of the course will trace the passion narratives in the Gospels-their interrelationship, construction and theological-pastoral Investments-and our role in listening to their distinctive voices. In the second part of the course we will explore the ripples of Jesus's passion as the stories were taken up, transformed, amplified, or muted by the Imaginations of subsequent generations In both sacred and secular contemporary art, film, literature, and practices. As we examine various artistic and devotional efforts we will consider the capacity of "conversation" as a metaphor for engaging a wide range of interpretations.
