Fr. Neilson will share thoughts and images as to how the Christian imagination has preserved and promoted the person and ideas of St. Augustine through the visual arts.

Fr. Neilson will also discuss how the story of Augustine's life and faith is as familiar and essential to today's culture as it has been for over 1500 years in both the believing and secular cultures.
