Seminar 11:
Johannine Spirituality

Johannine Spirituality: Its Centre, Background and Foreground

A seminar held jointly by the Institute for Spiritual Studies and the Trinity College Theological School.

This seminar will explore aspects of the spirituality of the Gospel of John. By 'spirituality' we mean the biblical sense of the role of the Spirit in engagement with the human spirit. This definition makes it clear that we are dealing with theology and with the biblical text in its objectivity, as well as with faith. Spirituality, in this sense, is part of the substance of the Bible and not simply a matter of its application.

The seminar will explore different facets of St John's Spirituality through lectures and dialogue. In addition, the morning will include opportunity for participants to spend time in meditation.

Date Saturday 13 October
Time 9.30 am – 12.30 pm
Venue St Peter's Hall, Eastern Hill
Cost $15 (concession: $12)
Speaker The Revd Dr Dorothy Lee, Dean of the Theological School and Frank Woods Distinguished Lecturer in Biblical Studies. Signed copies of Dorothy's new book, Hallowed Truth and Love — Spirituality in the Johannine Literature will be on sale at the Bookshop on the day.
