A Symposium on Teaching Virtue: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Pedagogy, Liturgy, and Moral Formation
Gutacker, Paul; Parker, Elizabeth Travers; Strecker, Cody; Krause, Nicholas
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v23 n2 p204-230 Jul 2019
Theologian Paul J. Griffiths has argued that thinking about Christian learning "must begin from thinking about the liturgy." This comparison between learning and liturgy invites reflection upon the nature and ends of Christian higher education, particularly how pedagogy might be informed by liturgy. This interdisciplinary symposium considers this very connection, proposing that the space of the classroom, the activities of teaching and learning, and the aims of Christian higher education are contiguous with the liturgical life of the Church. Four short reflections from the fields of composition, theology, ethics, and history offer four approaches to the relationship between liturgy and learning, demonstrating that the "liturgical" habits of these various disciplines cooperate in moral formation.
