Matthew Lawrence Potts
How do communities set apart the sacred from the everyday? In what ways might the holy and quotidian overlap? How can we recognize holiness? Using the Christian ritual of eucharist or communion as a lens, this interdisciplinary course will investigate the sacramental imagination through a study of both historical theology and contemporary literary fiction. In studying the various tropes and images that have been used to characterize Christian eucharist, we will seek to generate a broadly construed sacramental theology that might prove useful for both theological study and practical ministry. Course previously listed as "Eucharistic Theology and Ministry." Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.
