Perfection of Memory in the Vision of God: De trinitate

Perfection of Memory in the Vision of God: De trinitate

(p.189) 10 Perfection of Memory in the Vision of God: De trinitate
Memory in Augustine's Theological Anthropology

Paige E. Hochschild

Oxford University Press

This long chapter focusses on De Trinitate, with particular emphasis on books 12-14. Attention is paid to the over-arching argument of a complicated text, but the focus is on memory and the abiding centrality of the image-trinity that is founded in the same: the human soul as memory, intellect and will. The epistemological role of sense perception comes to the fore again, and the centrality of the Incarnation brings the more abstract trinitarian speculation into focus: faith in the true mediator gives access to the divine life that unites the temporal and the eternal.

Keywords:   De Trinitate, memory, intellect, will, faith, Incarnation, body, scientia, sapientia, love
