THEO 7652 Augustine: Life and Thought (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will survey the major works of the late antique North African bishop Augustine of Hippo. Keeping in mind the social, philosophical, and religious background to his thought, we will explore the development of his theology over the course of his career, with a special focus on its ecclesial context and often polemical character. Towards that end, attention will be paid to his theological disputes with the Manicheans, Donatists, and Pelagians.
