Description

This session on Augustine focuses on Augustine as exegete and preacher. The first paper discusses Augustine's preaching on the resurrection in the context of his Easter sermons. The author argues that the images of creation, incarnation, and church provide Augustine with different lenses through which he encouraged his congregation to see the resurrection as active in their life of faith. The second paper emphasizes the central role that preaching and pastoral leadership played in Augustine's life. In this paper the author addresses how Augustine's experience of pastoral leadership shaped his handling of scripture, especially in turbulent times. The third paper demonstrates the importance of reading Pauline texts alongside the Gospel of John and the Johannine letters. This enables Augustine's reader to view his preaching as sacramental and eschatological. The fourth, and final, paper concentrates on the problem of the imago dei in Augustine's exegesis of Genesis and Paul. The author aims to show that Augustine confirms Christ's communion with men and women in the fully sexed bodily resurrection. This sounds a note of equality in Christ and Church for women and men in both time and eternity.
