A World Besieged: The Status of Politics in Augustine’s Sacramental Worldview

Lecture by Veronica Ogle

Given at Assumption College on October 24, 2019

MEMS Fall Faculty Lecture – October 24, 2019 from Assumption College on Vimeo.

Excerpt: Today I will be zeroing in on the question of the status of politics in Augustine’s sacramental worldview. Let me just say two words about what I mean when I say that Augustine looks the world sacramentally: usually when we hear the word sacrament we think of Christian sacrament, like baptism or the eucharist. However, the term has a broader meaning, which is something akin to mystery. In other words, something can be called sacramental whenever it points beyond itself to a higher reality. For Augustine the whole world points above itself to the God who created it.
