Renewing Mystical Theology: The Link Between Theological Doctrine and Spiritual Practice in Medieval Spiritualities (NOW ONLINE)

Events

The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.

Eventi

La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d'Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell'Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall'Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.

Renewing Mystical Theology: The Link Between Theological Doctrine and Spiritual Practice in Medieval Spiritualities (NOW ONLINE)

Feb 26 - Feb 27

Renewing Mystical Theology: The Link Between Theological Doctrine and Spiritual Practice in Medieval Spiritualities

 

Location : Live-streamed online

 

Spirituality has grown distant from dogmatic and moral theology over the past few centuries. This trend continues, for example, in the quest to base one’s principles of spirituality mostly on the experience of one or more individuals. The medieval spiritual masters did not suffer from the division between doctrine and practice as many of our contemporaries do. These masters offer resources to overcome the division between theology and spirituality.

This colloquium gathers leading international experts on the mystical theologians of the 13th and 14th centuries. It aims to explore how theologies of contemplation and Christian perfection integrate philosophical principles, Scripture, established theological conclusions, the dogmatic teachings of the Church, and a theologian’s own doctrinal claims. What is the relation between these sources and spiritual experience? To what extent does philosophy impact “spiritual theology”? Is philosophy itself modified by spiritual experience? How do the spiritual masters integrate and modify the teachings of their ancestors, and on what basis?

The colloquium seeks to build on the foundation of historical studies, with the aim of developing clearer systematic principles for spirituality. For the sake of historical precision, each spiritual master is presented on his own. The method is at once historical and theological.
