Article | Spirituality and Social Change: Rebuilding the Human City by Philip Sheldrake

Sheldrake, Philip. “Spirituality and Social Change: Rebuilding the Human City.” Spiritus 9, no. 2 (2009): 137-156.

“To be human embodies a common life and a common task…it is important to note the intimate link between human identity and a Trinitarian theology of God.” (138)
This article is important for my work. It addresses some of my main points: Trinity, Augustine, space and place, urban/suburban planning, interiority and exteriority in spirituality.



Article | Appropriating the Divine Presence: Reading Augustine’s On the Trinity as a Transformative Text by Edward Howells

Appropriating the Divine Presence Reading Augustine as Transformative my annotated copy

This article contributes to my case that I must delve deeply into Augustine’s On The Trinity. The paper I wrote back in the spring is proving to be a bit prophetic for the course of study. Here Howells helps me understand Augustine’s pre-modern understanding of the relationality of the trinitarian persons and the better understanding of interiority.

Edmund Hill’s Translation of Augustine’s De Trinitate

the-Trinity-Edmund-HillI am very pleased to have found Edmund Hill’s Translation of Augustine’s De Trinitate. Previously I had been reading Phillip Schaff’s late 19th century translation and found it difficult to digest. Hill brings a brightness to the text that I find much more comprehensible, and actually enjoyable to read. Special thanks to Fred Sanders for the nudge.

It is my goal to make a thorough reading of this text before the New Year dawns.
