Augustine and His Influence
St. Augustine of Hippo is an intellectual giant. A church father whose influence on the Christian tradition is incalculable, he has also impacted many disciplines beyond theology—he's a major early thinker in political philosophy, psychology, linguistics, and more. In this eight-week summer reading group, we'll sample Augustine's greatest works in a way that's both accessible for beginners and offers something new for those who have read him before. Each week, we'll pair a classic excerpt from one of Augustine's major works with an optional secondary reading that reflects on his continuing relevance for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Readings will include selections from Confessions, City of God, On Christian Teaching, and On the Trinity. Week of June 5 through week of July 24, Mondays 5-6, meetings at the CCS House.
