I figure there is someone here that has read all of these, and I'm curious if I will feel bored out of my mind/find it difficult to read this in 6 weeks, plus write papers, work, do volunteer work and other stuff. I can't even find some of this stuff on the web to see what it is like.

-Augustine, Confessions, Books 1-2, pp. 3-34

-Augustine, Confessions, Books 3-6, pp. 35-110  

-Augustine, Confessions, Books 7-9, pp. 110-178  

-Pseudo-Dionysius, Mystical Theology

-Thomas Aquinas, “On Theology, Faith, and Reason” and “On the Ultimate End”

-Mechthild of Magdeburg, Flowing Light of the Godhead pp. 39-65, 69-78, 96-98, 114- 120, 152-156, 180-182, 223-228

-Martin Luther, “Freedom of a Christian”  

-Martin Luther, “Sacrament of the Body and Blood…” and “On Governmental Authority”

-John Calvin, from Books 1 and 3 of Institutes of the Christian Religion

-Martin Luther King, Jr., “What is Man?” and “Dimensions of a Complete Life”

You really got screwed over with Western theology. Is your teacher biased much? Anyhow, out of the aforementioned texts, I've only read The Confessions and possibly some of that Thomas Aquinas thing.

This stuff is a cake-walk. What grade are you in? I can't imagine much will be expected you understandingwise anyhow given how much American high schools operate.

Heck, even more American Universities aren't going to ask much of you after reading this lightweight nonsense. They did include MLK after all.

Good thing I didn't go to an American high school I guess. Its a literature class, not a theology class. The main point is writing.

Well, "I" didn't as I'm probably not going to take the class.

Where are you taking your secondary education? From you other posts, it seemed you weren't in university, but maybe I have you confused with another. Where you the one talking about GMO and "scientists"?

What kind of literature teacher asks their students to read the Mystical Theology?

Probably the kind that chooses to ignore the Norton anthologies.

To the OP: Head over to Project Gutenberg to read/download the uncopyrighted items on your list and see how you find them.
