Sommaire

There is a famous saying of Isidore of Seville at the close of Antiquity that the person who claims to have read all of the works of Augustine of Hippo (354–430), the most influential theologian of the Ancient Church, is a liar. In this course we shall focus on only three of his works, but they are absolutely key to his influence: the Confessions, which recounts his personal pilgrimage and his early thinking about God; On the City of God, which details his response to the iconic sack of Rome in 410 and his theology of history; and On the Trinity, which sets forth his mature understanding of the revelation of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We shall also read some of his letters that help to round out the biography of Augustine. Augustine’s interaction with Scripture and his perspective on living coram Deo in each of these areas of thought is especially highlighted.

Objectifs

The objectives of the course are threefold:

  •  To provide a detailed understanding of the life, theological perspectives and legacy of Augustine.
  •  To learn how to read and appreciate an early Christian author and exegete like Augustine.
  •  To develop an appreciation for the ongoing value of Augustinian theology and spirituality.
