RELG 7130 - American Spirituality

What is “spirituality” and why has it become such a pervasive term in contemporary American culture?

The encounter of historic religious traditions, especially Protestant Christianity, with the intellectual, cultural, economic, and social currents of modernity will form the larger background for our analysis.
