Title: AUGUSTINE: PHILOSOPHER AND SAINT - CD 1 OF 6 (INCLUDES CD 51796 to CD 51801)
This Program includes 12 30-minute lectures on 6 CDs. Disc 1 includes: Lecture 1: Church Father, and Lecture 2: Christian Platonist. Long before he was declared a saint by the church, Augustine gained profound influence as both a church father and a Christian Platonist philosopher - defending the doctrine of the Trinity, defining the epochal idea of religious grace, delving into the inner relationship between God and soul. Today Augustine is recognizable even to non-Christians as the most important Christian writer outside the Bible. Yet Augustine was also a man - a rhetorician trained in the Roman way to whose life and discovery of his calling makes for one of the most fascinating stories in the history of religious philosophy. This course by Professor Philip Cary paints a rich and detailed portrait of the life, works, and ideas of this remarkable figure whose own search for God has profoundly shaped all of Western Christianity. A Guidebook accompanies this program. 60 minutes
