Mystics of the Church
Dr. Glenn Hinson will be offering a Fall Class. Mystics of the Church will focus on the experiential element in a sound faith. (The others are intellectual, social, and institutional.) It will begin with a definition of mysticism and entail study of the life, thought, and experience of the major Christian contemplatives from Christian beginnings—Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant (Yes, there have been Protestant mystics.)—to our own day. The material for the course will require 14 periods. This class will begin Wednesday, September 8 and end December 8. This course will be offered ONLINE ONLY via Zoom at 10:30 AM.
