Catholicism: The Pivotal Players Series
St. Augustine and St. Benedict
This is a multi-part series that illuminates a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shapes the life of the Church, but cahnged the course of western civilization. This short study focusts on two incredible saints from the foruth and fifth centuries: St. Augstine of Hippo and St. Benedict of Nursia.
St. Augustine, the teacher, is possibly the best example of how faith in Christ changed a person. St. Benedict, the Monk, contributed more to saving western Christian culture than anywone else.
Join Bishop Robert Barron as he traces the lives and contributions of these two “pivotal” saints.
