Christian Women Mystics of the Middle Ages and Renaissance

Course Description

Early Christian women mystics lived courageous and often radical lives, pushing their bodies to the extremes of survival, challenging societal norms and, suffering for their faith. As rebels and renegades of strong faith they helped shape Christianity as we know it. The class will survey the cultural/social/political conditions that spawned such pillars of the Church as Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila and Joan of Arc. Students will gain a strong understanding of both the women's personal stories of valor and Christian devotion and the indelible stamp they made on Western Christianity.
