Ascetical Theology provides an introduction to the classical vocabulary and basic theological understanding of the spiritual life. After familiarizing himself with the essential concepts, the student will study the historical development and content of spiritual theology and be exposed to the dominant spiritual strains of Christianity, focusing on the resources of the Anglican tradition and together with the broader Biblical, historical and ecumenical context. This course will draw the student into a greater understanding of the importance of the spirituality in the life of a Christian.
