Offered in Summer 2012  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

A renewed interest in exploring the relationship between theology and the arts is evident from the growing literature in the field. The arts have become a fresh context for engaging important theological questions. For this course the focus of our attention will be on the wide range of the current conversations on arts and theology. Themes such as spirituality and art, liturgy and art, God and beauty, faith and the place of imagination, and art as a resource for engaging issues of justice will be among the topics we consider. The time in each class will be about evenly divided between lecture and seminar. Assigned readings which will be available in advance will serve as the context for the seminar discussions.
