From Augustine to Eriugena 

Essays on Neoplatonism and Christianity in honor of John O’Meara

Martin, F. X., Richmond, J. A., Washington: The Catholic University of America Press, 1991


In 1984 a group of John O’Meara’s colleagues decided to mark the occasion of his retirement from the chair of Latin in University College, Dublin, by the publication of a volume of essays. This book concentrates on Augustine and Eriugena, the two authors on whom he worked and with whom his international reputation is associated. Just as Augustine and Eriugena each tries to reconcile in his own individual way the Christian faith with the wisdom of the Graeco-Roman world, so this volume finds its focus.
