Semester 2, 2021 at Yarra Theological Union
Mary is a figure who transcends theology, culture, art and society. Those same fields have also shaped the way we respond to Mary today. Why is her image to be found everywhere? How did such enormous devotion to Mary evolve, at times eclipsing even Jesus Christ? Is there a basis for remarkable claims about Mary like Assumption and Immaculate Conception? Why has devotion to her constantly been changing in society?
Mary in the Christian Tradition is a unit that looks at Biblical, theological, artistic, historical, musical and social ways in which people have celebrated the life of Miryam of Natzrat and equally how she has shaped Christian piety, devotion and spirituality through the ages.
This intensive unit is taught on six Saturdays in Semester 2, 2021 from 9:30am – 4:30pm.
7 August, 21 August, 4 Sept, 18 Sept, 9 Oct and 23 October.
