Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI |Spirituality – The Discipline and its Agenda Today


The academic world, theological schools, and seminaries have been slow to recognize Spirituality as an academic discipline, consigning it to formation in religious houses and identifying it with formation and devotional practices. Fortunately, today, Spirituality is being recognized as an academic discipline. What exactly is Spirituality? And, what is its agenda today?

He remains a fulltime faculty member at OST. Rolheiser is a theologian, professor, and award-winning author. Apart from his academic knowledge in systematic theology and philosophy, he has become a popular speaker in contemporary spirituality and religion and the secular world. He writes a weekly column that is carried in many newspapers around the world. He is a popular speaker in the areas of contemporary spirituality and religion and the secular world.
