Educating the Poetic Imagination: Psalms and Poetry

Christine Perrin, MFA
Senior Lecturer, Author of Bright Mirror and The Art of Poetry 

BI 704 / BI 804
Course Dates: Jan. 2 – 30, 2023
Residential Week: Jan. 16 – 20
Mode: In-person
Tuition: $1650 (Credit) / $550 (Audit)
Registration Deadline: Dec. 19, 2022

The course will focus on the significance of the poetic imagination as a critical way we come to engage and understand visible and invisible reality of the cosmos. We will first establish the role of poetic imagination historically and make an apology for its ongoing and contemporary role.  We will also embody a musical education that most of us never received. To do so we will study and chant the psalms (with instruction) we will also study poetry in the tradition of the psalms, including George Herbert, Gerard Manley Hopkins and a small collection of contemporary voices.  We will do so with communal reading methods that aid our entrance into and contemplation of multi-valent and beautiful texts.  We will also discuss why this matters for ministry in the church and consider together why culture is a byproduct of praise and how necessary this is for us today.

Christian Platonism: Constructive Proposals

The Rev. Dr. Hans Boersma
Chair, Order of St. Benedict Servants of Christ Endowed Professorship in Ascetical Theology, Nashotah House

HT 722 / 822

Mode: In-person
Tuition: $1650 (Credit) / $550 (Audit)
Registration Deadline: Dec. 19, 2022

Christian Platonism has come to be viewed with suspicion in the modern period: its body-soul dualism, otherworldliness, and rejection of the goodness of matter have placed the Platonic tradition under a cloud of suspicion. Recently, however, a variety of philosophical and theological scholars have reappraised the tradition of Christian Platonism for its realist, anti-materialist and anti-skeptical potential. This course is the second of two reading courses on Christian Platonism and engages constructive theological proposals in Christian Platonism. (You don’t need to have taken the first course to be able to register for this one.) The readings focus particularly on how it is that Christians understand created things to participate in uncreated truth, goodness, and beauty.
