RTS305: The Spiritual Quest

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Religious and Theological Studies.
In recent years, the term “spirituality” has grown in popularity and has been used in a variety of ways. Integral to most meanings of it, however, is a focus on our lived relationship to the transcendent, or whatever we designate as the source of ultimate meaning in our lives. It includes how we experience the transcendent, our self-understanding in relation to it, and how we live out this relationship in the world. As human beings search for truth and meaning, we find this same basic “spiritual pattern” across cultures, religious traditions, and time. This course will examine the place of spirituality as the basis for living by looking at particular manifestations the spiritual quest has taken. Students will develop the critical tools needed to evaluate different spiritualties and be able to reflect on their own spiritual searching and experience.
