Prayer After Augustine

A Study in the Development of the Latin Tradition

Jonathan D. Teubner

Changing Paradigms in Historical and Systematic Theology

  • Focuses on the concept of prayer in Augustine and the subsequent legacy of the themes Augustine draws together
  • Offers new perspectives on Augustine arguing that the notion of the 'Augustinian tradition' needs to be re-thought; and that already in the generation after Augustine in the West such a re-thinking is already and richly manifest in more than one influential form
  • Encourages philosophical, moral, and historical theologians to think about what it might mean that the Augustinian tradition formed in a distinctively Augustinian fashion
  • Considers Augustine's reflections on prayer and how they were taken up, modified, and handed on by Boethius and Benedict
