Songs of the City of God: St Augustine and the Psalms

Old Library

In the Anglican tradition, we read the psalms everyday at Morning and Evening Prayer and at the Eucharist. This treasury of poetry at the heart of the Hebrew Bible lies at the heart of the spiritual life of the Christian Church. One of the great theological figures of the early Church is St Augustine of Hippo. From his writings, it is clear that his theological imagination was fed by the Psalms of David. In this series of Bible Studies, we will explore the Psalms with the help of the expositions of St Augustine. Everyone is welcome to join us for these weekly Bible studies.
