This unit introduces students to texts and figures at the limits of theological knowledge and experience. A diversity of mysticisms will be explored, including those within authorised theological traditions as well as experiential and bodily mysticisms that transgress official theological discourses and practices. Attention will be given to the relationship between mysticism and various forms of life in the world—including politics, ecclesiology, and the arts.
