Description

The purpose of this course is (1) to introduce a standard work of literature which richly illumines the Christian experience and deeply influences subsequent literature, (2) to encourage a thoughtful exploration of the theme of "spiritual pilgrimage" as explored in more recent literary works, and (3) to enable deeper reflection on personal experience of the Christian life by developing a repertoire of imagery and a range of genres through which to express spiritual experience. Lectures include:

  • Spiritual Pilgrimage: Biblical, Literary, and Historical Roots
  • Mapping the Christian Experience: The Puritan Pattern and Bunyan's Experience
  • Pilgrimage as Allegory: The Pilgrim's Progress Part One
  • Text and Intertext: Marginal Notes as Key to Bunyan's Theological Theme
  • The Pilgrim's Progress Part One: The Shape of the Narrative
  • The Pilgrim's Progress Part Two: The Companionable Journey
  • C.S. Lewis, The Pilgrim's Regress
  • Frederick Buechner, The Sacred Journey
  • Kathleen Norris, Dakota and Cloister Walk, or Peter Jennings, A Walk Across America
  • Poetry of Pilgrimage: Margaret Avison and Denise Levertov
  • Anne Lamott, Travelling Mercies or Lauren F. Winner, Girl Meets God
  • Pilgrimage, Quest, Journey: Interiorizing an Ancient Motif
