Below is the lecture description:
“Augustine and the Secular in Christendom and Modernity” This lecture addressed the growing relevance of Augustine in debates concerning secular space. Particular attention is given to how Augustine’s City of God delineates a positive conception of secular space and its role in civil society. A distinction between Augustinianism and Triumphalism is made to differentiate Augustine’s conception of the secular from the secularism and statism of many modern statist projects.
