From the very beginning Christians have traversed two worlds: their spirituality arises at the crossroads between Christian traditions and contemporary cultures. The relationship between Christian traditions and contemporary cultures in the context of spirituality can be theologically analysed from different points of view:
- The Bible and its reception
- Early Christian theology and literature (and in particular the Rule of St. Benedict) in which the roots of later spiritualities can be uncovered
- The particular mental horizons of the 21st century
- The concrete ritual forms spirituality can assume
- The comparison between the spirituality of different religions and denominations
Questions of this sort will be addressed in an academic programme offered at the Monastic Institute (Pontifical Benedictine University Sant’Anselmo, Rome), in cooperation with members of the following institutions: Faculty of Philosophy, Theology & Religious Studies of Radboud University Nijmegen (NL), Liturgical Institute of the Catholic University Leuven and Titus Brandsma Instituut (NL).
The CDCS programme is a two-year summer programme and new students can enrol every year. The next unit will be 6 – 17 July 2020 at Sant’Anselmo in Rome.
The registration deadline is 31 May 2020, but remember : Traveling to Rome requires international travel arrangements.
