DIVINIZATION/THEOSIS: The Ancient Tradition of Transformation in Christ

July 14 @ 5:00 pm - July 16 @ 10:00 am

Also available via Zoom

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 encounter early Christian descriptions of theosis/divinization, and we will discover how both the Rule of Benedict and Gregory the Great’s Life of Benedict reflects this ancient tradition. Finally, we will reflect together on how this can enrich the lives of those who live according to the Benedictine Way.
