Fall 2013 Lecture Series
Explore the fascinating roots of mysticism and prayer in the early Christian Church through a series of 12 lectures which highlight history, environment, culture, and gender. Author and CTU Associate Professor of Spirituality, Sr. Mary Frohlich, RSCJ, is the speaker. Readings include a selection of the most influential Christian spiritual classics from the first six centuries after Christ. Participants will have opportunities to practice methods of approaching these texts for spiritual benefit, academic study, and pastoral application.
The lectures will take place on Wednesday evenings from 7 - 8:15 p.m. in Room 210 of 5416 S. Cornell Ave., Chicago, unless otherwise noted. All lectures are open to guests for $15 per lecture or $150 for the entire series of 12 lectures. Complimentary parking is available in the CTU garage.
