This exciting and faith-expanding MA-level Taster Term allows you to thoroughly explore the concept of personal and corporate spiritual transformation.
Together with your classmates, you will study examples of transformation, conversion and growth in the context of key spiritual figures and texts from different periods of Christian history.
Using these fascinating sources and stories, you will begin to identify, analyse, and compare the distinctive patterns of Christian spiritual growth and transformation present in each text.
Finally, you’ll use this insight to assess the significance of these accounts to reflect on how they fit within a contemporary context. Through class work and independent study, you’ll explore how these patterns might impact how we understand human growth and transformation today.
As part of your studies, you’ll employ a range of approaches, from theological and spiritual, to historical, psychological, and social. This course is taught by St Augustine’s tutors Edward Howells and Barnabas Palfrey.
