Study Day: Introduction to Christian-Muslim Relations

Online with Zoom

In the first part of the course, we will look critically at the ways in which Muslim feminists interpret authoritative sources (Qur'an, Sunna, legal traditions). Some case studies will be considered including the qur'anic/biblical figure of Eve, women's leadership, and legal rulings concerning adultery. Secondly, we will discuss whether or not women bring a distinct contribution to inter-religious dialogue and how women might move from being objects to subjects of dialogue.

Study Day: Christ and the Cosmos

Online with Zoom

Study Day: Christ and the Cosmos ‘To gather up all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth’ (Ephesians 1:10). The first Christians had a keen sense that Christ came to save the whole creation, not just humankind. Gradually this cosmological tradition of Christianity got forgotten, but with the environmental crisis it has become more relevant than ever. It also offers rich and liberating insights on sin and repentance, the Cross, purgatory and heaven, angels and stars, the feminine and the body, and the place of the arts and psychology in Christian life. Course Leader: Dr Dominic White [...]

Study Day: Balthasar’s Theology of Prayer

Study Day: Activism or Preaching? The Artist’s Vocation

Online with Zoom

Study Day: Activism or Preaching? The Artist's Vocation Artists have influenced people and their perception of the world over millennia. Their place in the Church has varied from famous recognised designers to heretics and blasphemers. Nowadays, the rising voice of art awakens masses to change their behaviour towards sustainability or to fight injustice. During this course we will discover whether this movement has been acknowledged and supported by the contemporary Church and how it can flourish and be formed within the Christian vocation.
