TMHC 8013 Ignatian Spirituality: Foundations & Traditions (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

"Ignatian spirituality" takes its name from Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). This course surveys the origins and traditions of Ignatian spirituality beginning with an exploration of foundational works by Ignatius, including the Spiritual Exercises, his Autobiography, Spiritual Diary, and selected Letters. We then examine the traditions, principles, and diverse applications of Ignatian spirituality as they are expressed in the lives and writings of Jesuits and other men and women (e.g., Francis Xavier, Mary Ward, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Pedro Arrupe, Dean Brackley, Margaret Silf).
