Lecture: Sam Henthorn, "The Teacher in Augustine's Confessions"

Poster for Lecture: Sam Henthorn, "The Teacher in Augustine's Confessions"
207 MLC

"In his Confessions, Augustine commonly uses the relationship of master and slave as an analogy for the relationship between God and man. This talk will argue, however, that the text presents another, and more important, analogy: God as teacher and Augustine as student. This discussion will analyze his interactions with four major teachers and conclude that Augustine establishes five criteria of an ideal teacher."
