Aquinas Academy. Course—Mysticism: Plain or Flavoured?

7 May 2019 (continues over 4 weeks)
What exactly is meant by 'mysticism' and 'mystics'? Often the words are associated with special people having special experiences of the divine. Alternatively, what did Karl Rahner SJ mean when he said over 50 years ago that 'the Christian of tomorrow will either be a mystic—someone who has "experienced" something—or nothing at all'? This four-week seminar considers these two questions. The first week taps our Christian tradition about a proper understanding of mysticism and mystics. The next three weeks, using passages from their writings, explores what we can learn from two 20th century authors about mysticism and the presence of God at work in their lives. Led by Thomas Ryan SM PhD. More information and registration
