Augustine is the most influential writer/thinker in the Latin Church, after St. Paul and before Thomas Aquinas. For 900 years he was the voice of orthodoxy and reason. He lived in a time of chaos, conflict, rebellion and barbarian invasions. Manichaeism, Pelagianism and Donatism were heresies that were destroying the Christian community. In this session, Fr. Thomas Weston will present the conflicts and the accomplishments of Augustine as he comes to an understanding of the Gospel and human society in the late-fourth and early-fifth centuries. He is brilliant, creative and passionate, and he gives us the good example of doing the same in the 21st century.
