Welcome to St. Augustine’s City of God with Robert Royal
Congratulations on enrolling in our eight-week course of St. Augustine’s City of God. I’m confident that this will be an enriching experience as we go through one of the greatest and most influential texts of our Catholic tradition.
As in past courses, we will work our way systematically through Augustine’s text – with some additional materials that is given ahead of each session. If you are short on time, you should always focus on reading the assigned text of Augustine for any given session.
This is course is intended to deepen your appreciation for several Catholic truths that are helpful for us at this critical time, but really for all people trying to live a good life in the toils and troubles of human history. We don’t have to worry about texts, exams, or grades. Only truth. So take you time in your reading, think about it deeply, and let our great brother in the Faith St. Augustine inspire you.
