Sometimes called the second founder of the Franciscan Order, the thirteenth century friar, St. Bonaventure, was a theologian and mystic who helped shape the Franciscan tradition of thought and spirituality. His Tree of Life is a meditation on the life of Christ organized in such a way that the reader might imagine a tree with branches and fruits, and then use the image as an aid to memory.

This three-week course will take an in-depth look at this Christian classic, discuss its practical implications for our own spiritual growth today, and explore artistic representations of the Tree of Life that were inspired by St. Bonaventure’s text.

Instructor: John Bedding eld, T.S.S.F., D.Min. Thursdays: March 1 – 15, 2018
