Lecture no. 7 from the course: St. Augustine's Confessions
Taught by Professor William R. Cook and 1 others | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
In Book II, Augustine explains how his parents dealt with him growing into a man. Combining the first part of Book II with what Augustine tells us about his schooling in Book I, we can conclude that teenage Augustine's sinfulness has actually been furthered by his teachers and parents because they are determined that he become rich and famous.
