Augustine on Divine Transcendence and Immanence – CHSS 0010

Augustine on Divine Transcendence and Immanence

In his Confessions, Augustine maintains that God is both transcendent and immanent. In taking this position, Augustine drew upon the Christian and Platonist traditions and merged them to formulate two main pillars of his spirituality. Rather than seeing the two attribute of God in contradiction to each other, Augustine believed that to be faithful to Christian doctrine of God, the Christian must maintain both truths in tension. Join us this week as we explore the two-fold theme of divine transcendence and immanence in Augustine’s Confessions.
