Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will host the spiritual formation elective “History of Christian Spirituality, Part 2: The Reformation to the Present” January 4-8. The Rev. Dr. Arnold Klukas, professor of liturgics at Nashotah House, will lead the group.

As the class focuses in turn on great figures of the last 500 years of Christian spirituality, participants will not only discuss the insights and contributions of each of these “saints,” but they will engage in appropriate prayer and worship for contemporary spiritual life.
