Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

Medieval Mystics

Available Fall 2024

The students of this seminar will read and discuss representative Christian mystics from the period 1000–1600. Each meeting will focus on a particular group of mystics. Students will prepare individual oral reports on their particular readings and give them during each session. After the reports, the rest of the time will be devoted to general discussion and comparison of the texts.  Those taking the course at the 5000 level will be expected to use original language sources when writing their research papers.
