The twentieth century witnessed considerable debate over the question of the possibility of a "Christian philosophy." Two major figures of that revival were Étienne Gilson and Bernard Lonergan, both of whom read Aquinas in quite different ways on key questions. Nonetheless, this work brings these two authors into conversation. Debates continue in the twenty-first century, but the context has shifted, with Radical Orthodoxy and new atheism standing at opposite ends on the relationship between philosophy and theology. This work will demonstrate how the two thinkers, Gilson and Lonergan, may still contribute to a better understanding of this relationship and so shed light on contemporary issues.

This book argues that the church for Augustine is a mystery that is both visible and invisible. Far from discarding the visible community, Augustine places greater emphasis on the empirical church as his thought develops. To demonstrate this, the author traces Augustine’s ecclesiology from early writings to later works. Further, this study explores Augustine’s exegesis of biblical images of the church, such as body of Christ, bride of Christ, city of God, and sacrifice, in order to show how the visible community is intrinsic to the mystery of the church.
