Lecture Description

The last great Platonic theologian/philosopher of medieval Christian history was Anselm, who is best known for his so-called ontological argument for the existence of God, as well as his theory of the atonement, sometimes called the 'commercial theory,' or the 'satisfaction theory.' This lecture summarizes the first of these, and introduces the second, with the completion of the discussion coming in the next presentation.
