TMHC 8013 Ignatian Spirituality: Foundations, Traditions and Pastoral Applications (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course surveys the origins, traditions, and contemporary applications of Ignatian spirituality. We will systematically read and examine foundational works by Ignatius, including his Testament, Spiritual Diary and, especially, the Spiritual Exercises. We will explore the meaning of these texts in their historical context and in conversation with contemporary scholars and pastoral practitioners. In the course of class discussions and assignments, students will have the opportunity to arrive at their own interpretations of these classic texts and to explore ways to incorporate insights from Ignatian spirituality into ministerial and educational venues.
