A Discussion on St. Augustine with Provost James O'Donnell
Meet with Georgetown Provost James O'Donnell, Augustine's latest biographer, as he reflects on 40 years of reading and thinking about one of the most powerful intellects and personalities in the shaping of the Western tradition. Scholars used to agree that he was a paragon of virtue and holiness—but now, he has increasingly become a focus of controversy. Did the adolescent pear thief really find the holiness he sought? What can we learn from his quest? Weigh in at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club during this precursor to the intellectual engagement of John Carroll Weekend. Register and buy tickets here.
