This doctoral seminar will reflect on major themes in the thought of St. Augustine—his anthropology, his ecclesiology, his theology of history and of grace—as well as his historical importance, by concentrating on principal works such as the Confessions and the City of God. Additional works and secondary sources may be assigned by the professor.
