Augustine and the Disciplines takes its cue from Augustine's thought of the liberal arts to discover the bigger query of ways the Bible turned the focal point of medieval tradition within the West. Augustine himself turned more and more conscious that an ambivalent angle in the direction of wisdom and studying was once inherent in Christianity. by way of dealing with the highbrow problem posed by way of this stress he arrived at a brand new idea of the way to interpret the Bible properly.

Friendship between aspiring rhetoricians was necessarily agonistic, since their education would have required them to engage in regular duels. And in an important passage Gregory acknowledges that he and Basil were competitors: a world of tensions is implicit in his claim that they overcame the pressure of phthonos, and each took delight in the other’s victory rather than his own (Or. 43. 25 Eunapius, VS 487 (ed.

This is not a reference to advanced studies in moral philosophy, but a conﬂation (the more striking for its smoothness) of speciﬁc academic disciplines with their ethical context.
