Anglican History, Theology & Spirituality

Dates: January 20, 2020 - April 9, 2020 on Wednesdays

Time: 9:00 am for 3 Hours

This course is one of the key components of the Anglican Formation program at VST.  It provides an historical overview of the Anglican Church, from its pre-Reformation roots, through the era of reform, up to the present.  Along the way, we will take note of salient personalities, key moments, important documents, as well as Anglican expressions in the arts and music.  In all the events that shaped our history and became our story, we will explore how the circumstances shaped and defined what people tended to believe, and how that was expressed liturgically and in ministry and daily life.  All being well, in all the diversity of persons and developments, we may be able to discern the distinctive character or spirit or ethos of Anglicanism.

Prerequisite
LS500 and HIS500 unless otherwise specified after consultation with the Instructor.
