ITAL-364 Passionate Belief: Women's Visionary Writings, AD 203-1564
Offered academic year 2006-2007
From Perpetua's account of her own martyrdom at the beginning of the third century to Teresa of Avila's practice and teaching of mystical doctrine, Christian women writers have struggled passionately against great odds to make their voices heard and their vision known. The aim of this course is to read a wide selection of the texts produced by such women with minds and hearts open to their lived experience. Reading selections will be in English and English translation. Conducted in English. This course satisfies one of the two literature and writing requirements of the College.
