DIVINIZATION IN THE RULE & LIFE OF BENEDICT
Friday, May 24 - Sunday, May 26, 2019
The notion of "divinization" has traditionally been associated with Eastern Christian spiritual theology, particularly the Byzantine understandings of the sacraments and spiritual progress. In this workshop we will discover how both the Rule of Benedict and Gregory the Great's Life of Benedict reflect this ancient tradition; and we will reflect together on how this can enrich the lives of those who live according to the Benedictine Way.
