Ephrem & Syriac Christianity

SMH5012HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2009  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Alongside with Greek and Latin, Syriac Christianity was a crucial factor in the development of Christian theology, worship, and spirituality in the first centuries. A unique witness to the original Semitic character of the Church, Syriac Christianity provides deep insights into the symbolic and poetic approach to the mystery of God. This attains its summit in the theology and spirituality of Ephrem the Syrian. In the present course, reading and discussion of his works will be undertaken against the background of the development of Syriac Christianity from the 2nd up to the 8th century. Discussions, presentations. One essay.
