|What Are Intensives? Intensives are week-long courses in June and January which compress an entire semester's seminary study (of a single class). To accomplish this, students do pre-reading and other work before the on-campus all-day teaching week begins, and then some follow-on work after the week is over. The courses can also be taken as non-credit or audit. Whether audited or taken for credit, Intensives offer an excellent way to learn a lot in a very brief period of time as well as to see the campus and get a sense for seminary study at Trinity. We encourage you to try Trinity Intensives for continuing education and personal enrichment.|
Please find syllabi on the Course Materials page.

|PT 675/975 Anglican Spirituality||PT 725/LW925 Reformation Liturgy|
► The Rev. Dr. Arnold Klukas
The Anglican ascetical tradition is truly catholic in its embracing of spiritual disciplines that assist us in our growth in grace [sanctification], and a truly evangelical, grounded in Holy Scripture and our personal response to God’s call [justification by faith]. This class will explore the characteristics of Anglican spirituality in texts from Cranmer to the Carolina Divines, to the Wesleys and the Evangelical Movement, and how they are relevant to a contemporary pastor and spiritual director. Non-credit option: $180.
|► The Rev. Dr. Frank Senn|
This course will compare and contrast Liturgies that emerged in the 16th century Reformation Era in response to the late medieval liturgical context in Western Europe. Confessional traditions to be explored are Lutheran, Anabaptist, Reformed, Anglican, and Roman Catholic. Non-credit option: $180.

|PT 676/976 A Heart for God: Faith and Poetry from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century|

This class uses the Bible and major theologians to equip students to proclaim God the Holy Spirit to contemporary society. It includes discussions of the person and work of the Holy Spirit; the justification, sanctification and glorification of sinful people; and the church and her ministry of word and sacrament for God’s mission to the world.
► Dr. Janice Brown
A contemplative survey of profound poetry of faith, written over many centuries. Those with a ‘heart for God’ have frequently expressed their spiritual yearnings, struggles, and wisdom through verse, one of the great treasures of our Christian heritage—from the intimacy of George Herbert and the epic grandeur of Milton, to the discerning eyes of T. S. Eliot and C. S. Lewis. Non-credit option: $180.
