With the contemporary interest in spirituality, how do we test that it is "Christian"? Tensions lie also between personal and social spirituality, or between scholarly theory and ordinary practice, This course addresses such issues, emphasizing that the experience of the Holy Trinity has much wider application to Christian praxis than has commonly been recognized. A relational reform of the Church will be grounded upon a renewed Trinitarian spirituality, as this course will seek to introduce. Lectures include:

  • Introduction: The Forgotten Trinity
  • Western Approaches to the Trinity: Augustine to Aquinas (Part I)
  • Medieval Mystical Approaches to the Trinity
  • Western Approaches to the Trinity: Augustine to Aquinas (Part II)
  • The Cappadocian Doctrine of the Trinity (Part I)
  • Experiencing the Trinity Today
  • The Cappadocian Doctrine of the Trinity (Part II); Perichorisis
  • The Self Communication of God
  • Personhood - A Trinitarian Approach
  • Trinity and Contemplative Life
  • Trinity and the Moral Life
