Francis X. Clooney, SJ
This seminar is for students interested in the study of primary Indian/Hindu texts, read in translation and in the context of a comparative dynamic of reading across the boundaries of traditions. The Yoga Sutras and their commentaries will be read along with excerpts from Christian parallels (e.g., the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola). No language prerequisite, but students who know Sanskrit will be encouraged to make use of their expertise. It is part of a series, but it is not necessary to have taken prior seminars.
Enrollment Limited: Limited to 20 students. Instructor's permission required.
Open to BTI Students: Yes
