Theology class on Teresa of Avila about to start
Posted: 3/6/15 8:58 AM
The 500th anniversary of Teresa's birth provides a unique moment to explore her vision of spirituality and reform and what it has to offer us today. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) was one of the most prolific mystical writers in the history of Christianity. Writing during a time when the Spanish Inquisition censored many books on spirituality, Teresa encountered many obstacles in her attempt to realize her vocation as a theologian and reformer. Now widely respected and revered as the “doctor of prayer,” scholars and the faithful alike find a wealth of meanings in her message. The course makes use of theology, history, spirituality, and women's studies to understand the impact Teresa had on her contemporaries and what her reforming vision can teach us today. THEO 228 meets Thursday evenings, 5:30 to 9:15, from March 12 through May 7. For more information see attached flyer or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
