About

This course module deals with the doctrine of the Holy Spirit -
pneumatology - as it has been historically developed in the Christian
church and in contemporary theological reflection, as well as with the
related theology of the Church, known as ecclesiology. These
doctrines have been heavily debated throughout history, not just among
theologians, but also among philosophers. They have also frequently been
related to political questions. In the contemporary global Christian
landscape the doctrine of the Spirit, in particular, has come under new
theological scrutiny as a result of the growing pentecostal-charismatic
constituency. Through close engagement with significant theological
texts, this course aims at a deeper understanding of these doctrines in
their context, enabling students to pursue further theological
reflection on Spirit and community with a confident handling of sources
and a firm grasp of the central issues.
