THOMAS À KEMPIS AS A SPIRITUAL GUIDE 

Friday, August 14 - Sunday, August 16, 2020

 

One of the most enduring and well-known works of late medieval  spirituality is The Imitation of Christ by Thomas À Kempis.  This retreat will examine the text as a model for our own spiritual lives in the twenty-first century.  Thomas' emphasis on interiority and the role of the Holy Eucharist in the spiritual life, in particular, will be analyzed and set up as a model.  Further, the Benedictine roots of his spirituality will be addressed.

 

Rev. Dr. Greg Peters is an oblate of Valyermo, an Associate Professor of Medieval and Spiritual Theology at Biola University, La Mirada, CA and Servants of Christ Research Professor of Monastic Studies and Ascetical at Nashotah House Theological Seminary in Wisconsin .  As an Anglican priest, he serves as Rector of the Anglican Church of the Epiphany, also in La Mirada.  He is the author of Reforming the Monastery: Protestant Theologies of the Religious Life, The Story of Monasticism: Retrieving an Ancient Tradition for Contemporary Spirituality, and The Monkhood of All Believers: The Monastic Foundation of Christian Spirituality.
