DescriptionœEternity
at the Medieval Crossroads Between Athens and Jerusalem: The
Perspectives of Anselm of Canterbury and Peter Abelard

Few
topics get to the heart ofœWhat has Athens to do with Jerusalem?ƒ¢ââ‚š¬ 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.
