at the Medieval Crossroads Between Athens and Jerusalem: The
Perspectives of Anselm of Canterbury and Peter Abelard|
Few topics get to the heart ofâ€Å“What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?ÃÆ’Â¢Ã¢Ã¢ââ€š¬Å¡Â¬ like Eternity. What does it mean to say that God is eternal? Does it mean that God created Time and exists outside of Time? Or are these overly technical speculations a hold over from Greek Philosophy? The mystery of an Eternal God that exists in and outside of Time is so difficult to conceive that it is easy to discard it as merely a Hellenistic corruption of pristine Biblical and Christian teaching. This 45-min. lecture examines two key medieval thinkers, Anselm of Canterbury and Peter Abelard, whose consideration of Eternity and Time as it related to non-Christian traditions transformed how they thought about the functions of Natural Theology and its relationship with Revealed Theology.
