 The Roots of Asceticism and Monasticism 

Course content Christian monasticism has had a major influence on the development of European culture. It was mainly through the monastic tradition that the philosophical and scientific heritage as well as the practical knowledge of he Greek and Roman world was transmitted to the high Middle Ages and the establishment of universities. Although a totally new institution monasticism has its roots in the ascetic traditions of the Graeco-Roman world mainly developed within various schools of philosophy as an essential element within the search for wisdom. Socially the emergence of the ascetic has been seen as related to the disintegration of traditional societies as a result of Roman military conquest of the Near East.

Major questions about the emergence of Christian ascetic tradition and the formation of monasticism are intensely debated in recent scholarship. In addition to the most pertinent scholarly literature the course has its focus on the most important texts related to Christian ascetic and monastic traditions. An elementary knowledge of Greek is required for this course.

Time period teaching: September 1 – December 10, 2010 (week 35-49) paper to be handed in by January 31, 2011 Responsible teacher and institution Professor Samuel Rubenson (samuel.rubenson@teol.lu.se) PhD candidate Andreas Westergen (andreas.westergren@teol.lu.se) Centre for Theology and Religious Studies, Lund University Learning outcome Through the course the student will acquire Comprehensive knowledge of the ascetic traditions in Early Christianity from the New Testament period until the seventh · century C.E.

· Insights into the current state of research and ability to discuss relevant theories and to relate Christian ascetic traditions to ascetic traditions in early Judaism and Islam.

· Skills in reading source material in the original language and to analyse, discuss and interpret historical texts.

· The ability to demonstrate such skills and communicate such knowledge in writing.

Prerequisites In addition to the general requirements for the program, a minimum of 10 ECTS of Greek.

Course activities The course is taught through a system of e-learning and a compact seminar. Students are provided with a bibliography to be worked through independently, but discussed through an e-forum. They will further be provided with the relevant texts in Greek and in modern translation. Their reading of these texts will be aided by material on internet. For the compact seminar they will be asked to prepare certain textmaterial and present their analyses to other participants in the seminar.
