The objective of this seminar is to read and discuss some of the more influential of Augustine’s works not encountered in other classes at SJS. It is assumed that the student has already read Augustine’s Confessions and significant portions of the City of God. Thus this seminar will focus on reading other important works from the bishop of Hippo. While most of the classes will be devoted to a careful study of Augustine, occasionally there will be a brief investigation into the subsequent reception of Augustine by later theologians such as Anselm and Thomas Aquinas.
