Theology and the Arts

TRT2606HS  L0101
Offered in Summer 2013  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will explore key themes in recent discussions about the relationship between theology and the arts. Though some historical perspective on the place of the arts in the Christian church will be noted, the focus of our attention will be on the wide range of current conversations on arts and theology. Themes such as spirituality and art, liturgy and art, God and beauty, the place of imagination, and art as a resource for engaging issues of justice will be among the topics we consider. Though there will be a lecture component in the course, the classes will take the form of a seminar where assigned readings will serve as the context for our discussions.
