A Course on Christian Romanticism 

Blake_Christ and Truth.webp

e.

I am happy to announce that I will be offering an online course on Christian Romanticism beginning Saturday, July 13, 2024 and running for the following eight weeks. The course will meet in real time from 1-2:30/3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (US).

 

The course will cover a variety of topics and writers (tentative schedule below) in order to not only explore the cultural and spiritual history and phenomena of Christian Romanticism (conceived very broadly) but to see how Christian Romanticism (which is deeply related to Sophiology) is relevant to our own cultural moment.

 

The cost of the course is $150 (US).

 

If you are interested in enrolling, reach out to me at director@thecenterforsophiologicalstudies.com
