SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY

One could define spiritual authority as the power to support the opening of the entire universe – and especially of the life of human beings – toward union with the redeeming ultimate reality.
A central socioreligious form of spiritual authority manifests itself within relationships of spiritual guidance, or (to use the common Christian phrase) spiritual direction. This paper deals with the concepts of spiritual direction within Christian theology of spirituality. It highlights milestones in the history of Christian spiritual guidance and looks into the current situation.
