Theology Matters Course with Dr. Ryan Bonfiglio and Dr. Jens Korndörfer

In their eyes, hymns, psalters, choirs, and organs were not only capable of creating “sermons in sound” but also of shaping Christian piety and promoting private devotions. Learn more in this four week course. 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/26.
