Course

Religious Experience in Theology

Description

~~The goal of this course is to show that a self-knowledge that aims at being cross-cultural can ground a reflection on faith – Christian and non-Christian – that is ecumenical. We shall discuss issues such as the presence of religious experience in the Bible, in the Church Fathers and in the Medieval writers, the accent put on religious experience since Schleiermacher, the viability of religious experience as a theological category according to Lonergan, the relations between the intellectual and the affective approach to God, the integration of faith and reason, personal and collective authenticity, historical mindedness, pluralism and truth, etc.
