Anglican Spirituality and Ethos

PSF 302
Spirituality and Spiritual Direction

This course will explore the nature and practice of Anglican spirituality as it is expressed in art, film and poetry. Citing examples spanning the 15th to 20th Centuries, students will experience Anglicanism's historic emphasis on Incarnation over Atonement as the basis of salvation and the Anglican tendency to talk not so much about grace as to make it visible in words, music, movement and through the visual arts. Students will experience the manner by which these examples demonstrate a theological perspective that some Christian traditions call "worldliness," but still remain profoundly mystical at the same time. By immersing participants in a variety of nonverbal media alongside assigned texts, this course aims to stimulate right-brain thinking and facilitate learning through sight and sound as well as through written word.
