HC 620 - Theology in the Monastic Tradition

Description
This course has a foreground and a background. In the background is the institutional and social history of monasticism and related religious movements, from the origins of Christian monasticism to the end of the Middle Ages. In the foreground are some classic and perennially popular examples of monastic writing, from Benedict¿s Rule to the 14th-century Cloud of Unknowing, which we read closely by analyzing the theological arguments and by interpreting them in light of their historical context.
