Celtic Spirituality – Online
September 14—December 14, 2020, Mondays, 7:00 -8:30pm (1 credit | SFD 526)
Taught by Dr. Pat Loughery, this course is an introduction to a period of history in which Christianity developed somewhat differently in the British Isles and somewhat independently from the Church on the Continent. The “Golden Age of Saints and Scholars,” which characterized the 5th-8th centuries in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany, Cornwall and Isle of Man, continues to have an impact on the Church today. We will examine the ethos, worldview, and values of the Christian culture of that era, and how it speaks across the centuries to the Christian communities today.Take this course for credit I want to audit this course
