HNBQ 218 - Hispanic Social Mystics of the Dominican Order

3 Credit Hours
This course examines the lives of key figures of the Dominican Order. The focus of the examination will consider how their lives and commitment to contemplation, prayer, and social justice contributed towards the creation of a more just and humane world. Questions such as how a life of prayer fosters courage for advocacy, activism, and protest in helping the poor; how might caritas reveal itself at personal and systemic levels. The course is structured in manner attentive to how these figures and questions may form our own lives of prayer, ministry, and social justice to which we-as individual and as a church-are called by God. Figures such as Catherine of Siena, Bartolome de Las Casas, Martin de Porres, Rosa de Lima, Gustavo Gutierrez, among other contemporary social mystics, will be considered.
