New Location!: O’Shaughnessy Education Center
Between Discipline and Doctrine: Augustine’s Response to the Problem of Clerical Misconduct
Presented by Dr. David G. Hunter, Margaret O’Brien Flatley Chair of Catholic Theology, Boston College
As an active bishop, Augustine often had to deal with cases of clergy misconduct, sometimes sexual in nature, sometimes financial in character. Dr. Hunter will explore both Augustine’s practice in dealing with specific cases of clergy abuse of power and position, as well as his doctrinal convictions on the question of the holiness of the Church and its clergy.
