THEO 238 - Latin@ Spirituality: The Origins, Roots, and Contemporary Experience of a People

3 hours
This course provides an in-depth exploration into the spirituality of Latinos and Latinas living in the United States. With the understanding that Latin@ spirituality varies between and within faith communities, this course will particularly focus on the origins, development, and contemporary experience of Roman Catholic Mexican-American spirituality with special attention to the theological character and implications of that spirituality. We will examine the roots and origins of this perspective through history, literature, cultural anthropology, biblical studies. Additionally, this course will aid the discovery and exploration of one’s own spirituality, whatever one’s cultural and theological starting point might be.

Listed also as LLAS 238
