L312: Augustine's Confessions

Christendom Track

Whether you are interested in history, theology, philosophy, or literature, Augustine’s masterpiece has something for you. In this course you will read selections drawn from across the Confessions and discuss them in depth. This careful approach to the text will help readers go beyond the surface meaning of the text and prepare them to engage complicated themes and follow arguments in Latin. Students should already be comfortable reading and speaking in Latin, as this class will be conducted entirely in Latin.
