St. Augustine of Hippo was one of the most influential figures in the history of the Church and arguably the finest theologian who has ever lived. Many of the ideas St. Augustine developed have formed the foundation of our understanding of theology for centuries. In this class, we will seek to understand the major themes in St. Augustine’s writings, focusing on some of his commentaries on Scripture, his dialogue writings, and most especially, the Confessions - without question his most famous book. Students will be introduced to one of the greatest and most humble minds in history, and will have the opportunity to see how St. Augustine’s thought developed over time, and how he has been interpreted and misinterpreted through the centuries. (1.5 credit hours)

Course is recorded live at Holy Sprit College in Atlanta, GA.
