TMST 7031 Consecrated Life in the 21st Century (Fall: 3 )
What precisely is the role and function of Consecrated Life in the church and world today in terms of its significance and influence? What are the contemporary concerns, innovations, and tensions shaping the witness, commitment and identity of consecrated persons at the present time? The course begins with a careful analysis of the evolution of classical forms of religious life and the emergence of ecclesial movements and new communities. Using ecclesial documents, theological resources, and case studies, the course examines the meaning, practice, and interpretation of the essential and distinguishing elements of various forms of Consecrated Life.
