Inhoud
The study of spiritual practices combines two dimensions. Anthropologically, these practices concern human interactions, individual experiences and cultural expressions. Theologically, spiritual practices are about God’s Spirit and the presence of the Spirit in these cultural expressions and human interactions. In this course we study spiritual practices according to these two dimensions. The first line in the course consists of the reconstruction of the pneumatological dimensions in three recent theologies from different cultural backgrounds in order to understand the relationship between cultures and the presence of the Spirit. The second line concerns the empirical study of spiritual practices according to participative and comparative methods. These practices are selected biographically and culturally. 

The course is research based and we aim to discover (1) how recent theologies of the Spirit interact with spiritual practices and (2) how this contributes to further understanding the interface of pneumatology and culture. During the course students work towards a scholarly article on the interface of pneumatology and culture, by studying concrete examples of spiritual practices. In the classes we create a setting of a ‘writing workshop’ with methodical contributions on research and writing and theological content on pneumatology and spirituality.
