Semester 2 unit: The New Testament Foundations of Ignatian Spirituality

Dr Sarah Cook

The New Testament Foundations of Ignatian Spirituality is designed to develop in students an ability to engage in an informed critical reading of New Testament texts as sacred scripture. It aims to enable students to broaden and deepen their engagement with the New Testament in a spirit of open and critical inquiry by drawing on a wide range of exegetical tools of interpretation. Students will also learn to evaluate and relate the literature of the New Testament, its literary forms and historical setting, as well as its representation of God, to the literature, literary forms and representation of God in the Spiritual Exercises.  This is a brand new unit for 2019 and is cross-listed in the disciplines of Biblical Studies (BS), New Testament (BN) and Spirituality (DS).
