Lenten 2006 Class -- Classical Spiritual Disciplines

Celebration of Discipline -- Chapter 5 -- Is this discipline really a classical discipline?

Okay, I have been wrestling with the discipline of study. Is it really a classical discipline. Here are some questions I have rolling in mind.

  • How did pre-literate Christians practice this discipline?
  • How was this discipline practiced before the wide proliferation of books?
  • Could it have been practiced before the wide proliferation of books?
  • Does this call into question its status a classical discipline?
  • Is Foster proposing a discipline that could only have existed during the last 400 years our of 2000 of Christian history?

Any thoughts on my musings?
