ADEN 3500 Writers and the Catholic Imagination (Spring: 4 )

Course Description

Boston College’s Jesuit Catholic tradition encourages students to “find God in all things.” This course examines spiritual expression in a sample of modern and contemporary Catholic literature, including short stories, poetry, film, and creative nonfiction. How does Catholic literature provide unique opportunities for reflection, even inspiration? How do spirituality, art, and human experience intersect? As students learn about Catholicism to better understand literary texts, and vice versa, they explore the themes, questions, and formal and literary techniques that inform the Catholic imagination.
