President's Lecture Series: Augustine: Reaching for Peace in This World

Monday, March 20, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

It is often said that, for Augustine, perfect peace in this life is unattainable. Perfection, of course, must await the fullness of time in just about everything. But, Augustine also accepted the benefit of human efforts for peace in this time, engaging the imperfect world and culture in which he lived in human ways. It is, in fact, more interesting and more accurate to talk about his thought and dedication to peace than to pretend that he had theory about just war.
