21st Lenten Lecture with Dr. Christopher Evans
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Dr. Christopher Evans, will present the third Lenten Lecture about "Augustine, Liturgy, and the Word" on March 3, 2010.
This is the third 2010 Lenten Lecture in the series. Topics on "The Liturgy of the Catholic Church: Selected Topics” will be presented every Wednesday in Lent.
St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) is one of the greatest figures in Western Christian theology. His vast writings have been the object of thoughtful reflections and thorough investigations throughout every century since his death.
This lecture will explore St. Augustine’s theology of divine inspiration, particularly as it relates to his understanding of the Word of God in the liturgy. Of interest here is how the liturgy provides him with the one context in which the biblical writings can be experienced and understood under the same inspiration in which they were written.
Augustine thus offers us a beautiful depiction of how the liturgy provides the necessary occasion for the Holy Spirit’s work in believers to make the Word of God come alive.
