Saints & Sinners: This time, we mop things up relative to Augustine, delving into his two major rhetorical and actual fights with the Donatists and the Pelagians. Augustine explores free will, predestination, and the nature of sin. We then pivot to monastic life, and a brief history of the Augustinian Order. Along the way there are the Christian persecutions from earlier during the Roman Empire’s Crisis during the Third Century, The Cyprian Plague, and a host of sinners and saints.
In the end, we are left with the question, were you predestined to download this program, or was it your free will?!?! You decide!
