Journey to the Holy Land

An Ignatian Journey to the Holy Land

January 18-February 1, 2016

In this unique pilgrimage, you will experience the Holy Land through the powerful lens of Jesuit contemplation.

Your journey will be enriched throughout by the expertise of three professors whose specialties richly complement the goals and format of this trip: Patricia Tull, a professor of Hebrew Bible with 20 years of experience leading Middle East travel seminars; Anna Miller, a professor of New Testament and Early Christianity; and Gillian Ahlgren, a professor of Christian History and Spirituality.

Visiting locations throughout Galilee, Jerusalem, and the Judean desert, we will engage the Ignatian spiritual exercises to deepen our understanding of place, suffering, and the reality of new life. This contemplation will allow us to enter into productive dialogue with the scriptural tradition and the complex socio-historical relationship of the three Abrahamic faith traditions rooted in the Holy Land. Our visits to sites of biblical and historical interest will be complemented by experiences with living faith communities in the Jewish, Christian, and
Muslim traditions.
