Augustine Reassessed Again
James J. O'Donnell, Georgetown Provost; Author, Augustine: A New Biography
Hear an Augustinian scholar (and his latest biographer) reflect on 40 years of reading and thinking about one of the Western tradition's most powerful and influential intellectuals and personalities. The image of Augustine that comes down to us over the centuries is a paragon of virtue and holiness, after a famously misspent youth. But controversy remains. Did the adolescent pear thief really find the sanctity he sought? Or did the originator of the tell-all autobiography have even more to confess?
